NUS Responsible Futures meeting

Dear Colleagues,

 

We have the pleasure to invite you to Manchester Met’s National Union of Students (NUS) Responsible Futures (RF) meeting on the 4th of May at 2 pm in BS 311, hosted by the Sustainable and Ethical Enterprise Group (SEEG).

The NUS Responsible Futures project aims to place social responsibility and environmental sustainability at the heart of education across UK universities and colleges. The NUS Responsible Futures accreditation aligns with other accreditations and initiatives including People and Planet University League, QAA subject benchmarks, PRME, EQUIS, AACSB, Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES).

Manchester Met was one of 15 universities and colleges to pilot the RF project, helping to develop the standard. We achieved our institutional accreditation in 2015 – the feedback report can be found here:

A reaccreditation audit will be taking place on May 16th and 17th, where a selection of criteria must be met through a partnership between our institution and Students’ Union.

There are great examples of teaching, engagement and research activities across Manchester Met that are relevant for the reaccreditation. However, keeping up to date with all your great work is not always easy. This is why we have the pleasure to invite you to an hour meeting in which we will provide an overview of NUS Responsible Futures project/accreditation, followed by a discussion from which we will gather information to showcase to the student auditors and the NUS.

It is also a great pleasure to announce that the three Responsible Futures high-level champions are:

Amie Atkinson, Cheshire Vice President (The Union)

Dr. Liz Price, Head of School of Science and the Environment (Manchester Met)

Prof. Sally Randles, Chair of Sustainability and Innovation (Manchester Met)

We look forward to seeing you!
