Virtual Staff Week on inclusion and mobility
The Virtual Staff Week offers the opportunity to meet your Circle U. colleagues and share ideas on how to increase mobility for all students.
Who are the students in need of inclusion? What are their needs? How do we reach out to them and how do we communicate with them and offer them support?
The Circle U. institutions are committed to working towards inclusion of all students, whether they are defined as having fewer opportunities or whether they are students from underrepresented groups in mobility.
This staff week on inclusion and diversity aims at supporting Circle U.’s effort to build up networks of expertise across units, intensify awareness about support and make more students choose international mobility. Goal is also for the participants to be inspired and to learn from each other.
- Target groups: mobility coordinators, special needs coordinators, communication staff and student advisors across all institutions within the Circle U. alliance.
- Host: University of Oslo
- Co-hosts: Aarhus University and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
