Stay involved after graduation
Issued: Mon, 25 Nov 2013 16:29:00 GMT
Your relationship with the University doesn’t have to end after graduation. As a graduate, there are many benefits including discounted membership of the University’s library and sport facilities.
You can also have a voice in how the University responds to and tackles the challenges ahead. One way to share your views or hear what’s happening is to attend the General Council meetings, which usually take place in January and June. The dates of these meetings are posted in every issue of Avenue; see General Council. Graduates and academic staff are all members of the General Council.
‘Every graduate’s contribution would be greatly valued,’ says George Tait, convener of the General Council’s Business Committee. ‘We are particularly keen to encourage recent graduates to get involved.’
From time to time there are opportunities to join the General Council’s Business Committee, who act on behalf of the General Council and raise issues of importance to graduates and academic staff with the University Court.
