Our website outlines the range of events, courses and resources we offer, which are tailored to the differing requirements of these different audiences.
We also work collaboratively with support services, Schools, Colleges and others on a range of projects and initiatives. Topics and themes are identified and prioritised through discussions with College and University committees and our Institute Advisory Group.
The Institute is hosted by the College of Humanities and Social Science to provide a University-wide service for staff and students in all three Colleges.
Our Advisory Group includes representatives from all three Colleges along with the Edinburgh University Students’ Association, University Vice Principals and support services.
Priority themes and specific projects (e.g. linked to secondments) are agreed through discussion with our Advisory Group, College Deans and relevant committees.
Copies of reports and plans are available on our wiki.
