Communities and Students Together (CaST) – EUniverCities Project

Partners: University of Exeter, University of Parma, (THUAS), Ghent University and University of Magdeburg, University of Malaga and University of Turku


Meanwhile, CaST, which aims to further our understanding of community engaged learning and the benefits for students and communities they partner with, has just published its second output – a case study compendium. Coordinated by Ghent University, “Engaged Learning in Europe” is now available to download from the CaST website. CaST also held a successful online one day symposium in February, when CaST partners disseminated the findings of the first two outputs, and heard from guest speakers from the Ghent University, Delft City Deal on Education and Queen’s University Science Shop Belfast. Despite not being able to meet in person, there was lots of discussion and exchange of ideas to help the partners design and develop their pilot engaged learning programmes in their own institutions. https://www.cast-euproject.eu/

Civic University Agreements
The University of Exeter and Exeter City Council are progressing their work on the development of their Civic University Agreement (CUA). The CUAs will support the University’s strategic work with our partners in the region and set out how the University can enhance and enrich the economy, society health, wellbeing and the environment. The agreements, which will be co-created with our anchor partners (including the local authorities and NHS) and the wider community, will be evidence-based and supported by extensive consultation and conversations with stakeholders.
