It was a pleasure to welcome the members of Council and other guests from Thursday 26th to Saturday 28th April 2018 for the annual UWC RCN Council meeting here on campus. Our Council members continue to act as our supporters, our bridge-builders, and our voice across the Nordic region.

The Council gathers once a year on campus and the Board four times a year, alternating between College visits and other locations throughout the Nordic region.

In advance of the Council Meeting, the UWC RCN Annual Report – a printed encapsulation of our work and reflection on the year gone by – was released. Please see here for an electronic copy.

Beyond the formal Council meeting, we designed this year’s programme in a way that provided members with concrete opportunities to engage with students and staff, through careers workshops and focus groups on areas of strategic importance. For the latter, we set up some Focus Group Meetings (UWC Nordic Short Course, Fundraising, Campus Development, the RCN Educational Model, and Regional Impact) on Friday afternoon – open to Council members, Education and Support Staff and the newly elected Student Council members.

The Council Meeting was followed by a themed dinner, ‘Valhalla’, coordinated by our Events Management students and staff team in the Høegh – with a set of performances by students and staff for after dinner entertainment.

Tonje (Norway) and Flormari (USA), two of our second year students, ended the day with a wonderful introduction to gammaldans – with the help of local musicians, Jan and Andreas. Over sixty of us took to the dance floor.

Thank you to all those who contributed to the programme for our Council members and guests.
