UCL has developed some online training for students on the subject of equality and diversity. Equality is about ensuring individuals are treated fairly and are not discriminated against or harassed on the grounds of characteristic such as their race or gender. The training has been designed to equip students with an understanding of their rights and responsibilities, both at university and in future workplaces.
We are aware that there has been a serious issue which has been affecting our members ability to log in to uclu.org today, Friday 28th February 2014. This is also impacting on the opening of voting as of 10am this morning, specifically meaning that for many there has delay in loading voting pages.
Please note that if you have been able to log in and vote, this will have been successful and once the current issue is resolved, you will be able to check the status of all of your votes.
The NSS is your opportunity to give your opinions on what you liked about your time at UCL as well as things that you felt could have been improved.
UCL and UCLU want to hear your views - it only takes 5 minutes.
This week marks the launch of this year’s UCLU Student Choice Teaching Awards. We launched these awards last year in response to student feedback – you wanted a way to celebrate outstanding teaching across UCL and setting up these awards to raise the profile of teaching is part of our response to that. There are three categories to choose from, including Outstanding Teaching, Outstanding Support for Teaching and Outstanding Personal Support.
Sports Ball tickets have sold out. We are exploring the possibility of increasing the number of tickets (nothing is guaranteed) and will let you know as soon as possible.
Inspire young people to raise their aspirations and achieve their potential. IntoUniversity provides a network of learning centres in disadvantaged areas and we are looking for enthusiastic and committed UCL students to become mentors in 2014. Volunteers are asked to contribute just 1-2 hours every two weeks at one of our 11 centres across London and take part in fun activities together and in groups.
Our next training session is on Wednesday 5th March, 1-5pm.
