Ms Susan Grant
- Community Engagement Coordinator (Health & Wellbeing Professional Services)
1 Horselethill Road (House 2), Glasgow, Glasgow City, Scotland, United Kingdom, G12 9LT
I joined the Institute of Health and Wellbeing in April 2022 in a role which has arisen from the opportunities our new Clarice Pears building, and I am really excited to be working on the development of the community resource hub as the institute’s Community Engagement Coordinator.
I have been making links between community and university to add value to existing research and teaching and develop new initiatives for meaningful engagement with the public in Glasgow for the past 18 years and have been an active member of my local community as a volunteer.
I studied at the University of Strathclyde and have been a project manager with the Scottish Funding Council’s GOALS (Greater Opportunity for Access and Learning with Schools) and Glasgow Caledonian University’s widening access project, The Caledonian Club before moving over to establish Community and Public Engagement at GCU where I worked with community partners across the City and researchers and students from all disciplines to develop knowledge exchange activities in line with the university’s mission ‘For the Common Good’ and towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Examples of CPE activity at GCU can be viewed at the following links: GCU CPE Case Studies 2018-19, CPE Impact Report 2019-20; CPE Impact Report 2020-21
I would be delighted to hear from you if you are working in community or at the university to improve health and wellbeing and tackle health inequalities and are interested in being part of the development of the Institute’s research and community resource hub.
