The U21 Annual Review 2012/13
This Annual Review includes some of the ways in which Universitas 21 has been working collectively to support members’ efforts to internationalise both their educational offerings and experiences for students. This year, we adopted a new strategic approach, consolidating our activities into three main clusters of activity:
- Educational Innovation,
- Student Experience and
- Researcher Engagement.
This year we were fortunate to add three new members to our number, extending our membership still further in the United States of America (the University of Maryland and The Ohio State University) and for
the first time in South Africa (the University of Johannesburg). This brings our membership to 27 in total, against a membership limit agreed in 2011 of 29. We have no current plans to increase our membership further, instead concentrating on ensuring engagement and consolidation of our current membership, and
the development and delivery of innovative programmes organised around our agreed clusters of activity.
This past year has been another busy one, with the promise of more to come in the future, as the plans developed over the past year are refined and brought to air. I encourage you to find out more about us, what we have done and where we are going, in the pages of this Annual Review.
