It was a pleasure to welcome the members of Council and other guests from Thursday 14th to Saturday 16th April 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 twice a term, alternating between College visits and other locations throughout the Nordic region.

On Friday morning, the UWC RCN Annual Report – a printed encapsulation of our work and reflection on the year gone by – was released to coincide with the annual Council meeting. Please see here for access to an electronic copy.

A workshop led by Council MembersBeyond 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 Action Plan Focus Groups (Academic, Extra-Academic, Pastoral, Management, Stewardship and Impact) on Friday afternoon – open to Council members, education and support staff and both the outgoing and the newly elected Student Councils – for discussion of certain areas identified by the Board.

During the course of the Council Meeting, we were also able to confirm the election of new members of both the College’s Council and Board. Please see here for details of our new members.

The Council Meeting was followed by a themed dinner, ‘Snow in Springtime’, which truly captured the time of the year, coordinated by our Events students and staff team, in the Høegh – with a set of performance by students performers for after dinner entertainment.

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