IMPACT Campaign Ambassadors: Volunteers Needed
When the Vice-Chancellor recently addressed all the UNMC staff (28 Sep 2012) he mentioned the IMPACT campaign that has been running in the UK and is now being launched at UNMC and UNNC.
What is the IMPACT Campaign?
The Nottingham IMPACT campaign aims to raise £150 million over the next five years you will be supporting a series of high-impact projects on the local, national and global stage.
Across five campaign themes these projects will have a positive and lasting influence on society. We want to make an impact that will touch generations.
What is the UNMC IMPACT Campaign?
The international campuses are also launching an IMPACT campaign. Indeed it was soft launched by the Vice-Chancellor on his recent visit (there will be a further launch early next year).
In order to support the IMPACT campaign at UNMC we are setting up a charitable foundation. Discussions are underway as to the best way to do this.
Our IMPACT campaign will support a number of initiatives (e.g. scholarships). The exact details are still being worked out, but we will update you as more information becomes known.
What is an Ambassador?
In order to support the IMPACT campaign we need the support of our global network of communities – alumni, students, staff, friends, charitable organisations, business and community partners. Our success will require new levels of engagement with this extended family to ensure mutual and long lasting benefits. This talent and experience, if properly harnessed, will play a vital role in raising awareness of the University’s strengths and opportunities, to both our alumni and the wider community.
We are seeking volunteers (both academic and administrative) to help us with the Campaign.
By becoming an IMPACT Campaign Ambassador you will be able to develop your networks internally and externally, be able to participate, organise and host varied and enjoyable events throughout the year, and have access to training and skills development. At the same time, you will be contributing to a Campaign that strives to make an even better environment for teaching, learning and research at this University, enabling us to deliver tangible benefits to the wider society we serve.
