New Discussion Paper
New DERC Discussion Paper: "Student Volunteering and Global Citizenship at UCL".
This paper is based on a small collaborative study by the Development Education Research Centre and the Volunteering Services Unit (VSU) at University College London (UCL) in 2016.
The research aimed to identify the extent to which UCL students who engage in volunteering activities through the VSU see a connection between their experience and UCL’s mission of equipping graduates to be ‘global citizens’. The researchers were interested in how students understand the concept of global citizenship, how aware there were of this agenda within the University, and to what extent their understandings aligned with the University's goals.
