We are currently looking for alumni case studies as part of Universities Week 2012 (30 April–7 May), which aims to increase public awareness of the wide and varied role of the UK’s universities. It is the third annual national campaign of its kind and will this time incorporate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games as its overarching theme.
It is supported by universities across the UK and a wide range of organisations including Podium, the National Union of Students (NUS), Research Councils UK, the Universities Marketing Forum, Higher Education Funding Council for England and many more.
The week will culminate in the BUCS Outdoor Athletics Championships, which will be held in the Olympic Stadium as part of the London Prepares series.
We’re currently recruiting supporters and spokespeople for Universities Week 2012 to help showcase the positive impact that universities have made to sport in the UK.
Whether you’re an athlete or sports star, a tutor or academic who is passionate about the latest sporting research, or an alumnus involved in the logistics of the Games, we want to hear from you.
The case studies will form the basis of two reports which will look at the impact of higher education on the 2012 Games, the UK sports industry and UK society as a whole.
