In late November Adel Coleman, Graduate Attributes Programme Manager, attended a Staff Mobility Week at Erasmus University Rotterdam to gain knowledge of the student support initiatives in place across European HEI's, and to share details of the Your Compass self-assessment. 

University College Cork is one of the founding partners of UNIC, the European University of Cities in Post-Industrial Transition. UNIC is an alliance of ten universities across Europe who are working with their cities and with one another to tackle urban challenges and develop shared, sustainable futures. The UNIC university partners are University College Cork, Erasmus University Rotterdam, Koç University Istanbul, University of Deusto in Bilbao, University of Liège, Ruhr University Bochum, University of Oulu, University of Zagreb, University of Lodz, Malmö University.

UNIC unlocks new international opportunities by connecting students, staff and city stakeholders with our partners for transformative learning, research, innovation and societal impact. 

Between the 27th of November and the 1st of December 2023, Erasmus University Rotterdam hosted a Staff Mobility Week that welcomed student support professionals from UCC, the University of Liège, Ruhr University Bochum, the University of Oulu, and Malmö University. Throughout the week, staff from across this UNIC European Alliance shared their knowledge, insights and best practices in areas of student support, student holistic development, and the evolution of higher education in the European landscape. 

Adel Coleman, Graduate Attributes Programme Manager was invited to deliver a session on the Your Compass self-assessment, which supports students to understand and develop their graduate attributes and values throughout their university journey. She shared key insights on how students across the four UCC colleges are developing graduate attributes and values in the classroom. As with UCC, Erasmus University Rotterdam supports students to develop values that enhance their positive impact in society.
