The aim of the U21 Student Mobility Group is to enhance student mobility within Universitas 21 by:
Sharing information and best practice
Promoting collegial interaction
Collaborating on projects facilitating international experiences for students
Engaging in professional development.
The group includes a nominated U21 Student Mobility Officer (SMO) from each member institution. The Student Mobility Group meet online to discuss issues of common interest and to share best practice. The Student Mobility Group are key contacts for the U21 Global Student , connecting students from their institution with opportunities to engage with the U21 global student network.
Universitas 21 Global Citizens is an online leadership development course with 75 student spaces available per member institution. Participants learn the skills needed to thrive in the 21st century whilst tackling some of the world’s most pressing problems, outlined in the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG).
The U21 Sustainable Micro-internships programme allows students to work with fellow students from across the globe, sharing knowledge and expertise whilst immersing themselves in a commercial organisation.
RISE (Real Impact on Society and Environment) is U21’s international showcase of student achievement in sustainability and social innovation designed to accelerate the scale and impact of student-led projects by connecting them with a global peer and supporter network.
“Open Space” is a technique for running meetings where the participants create and manage the agenda themselves. Participants agree on the areas of discussion that have importance for them and then take responsibility for facilitating the sessions.
These two one-hour sessions will allow any mobility colleague to suggest a topic they would like to collaborate on, share best practice/challenges or brainstorm with colleagues about.
