The University of Zurich is hosting an interesting staff week in November. We would be grateful if you could share the below information with colleagues in the relevant departments (see areas below) at your institution.
A number of academic service departments at the University of Zurich would like to invite you to come along and discuss different questions related to their field of expertise with you.
One of the biggest challenges of University Administration is to implement strategic policies and concepts into operational working practices across the institution. With multiple stakeholders, various levels of autonomy and differing expectations, bringing about change in a university is no easy task. We would like to discuss practical questions around introducing, promoting and communicating new practices in our specific professional areas.
As such, this staff week is open to colleagues who are involved in professional services at a European university, particularly in the following areas:
- Continuing Education (Academic Staff Development),
- Managing Diversity,
- Research Support Units,
- Health and Safety.
We are looking forward to interesting discussions, sharing ideas and being inspired by each other’s experiences and working practices. Save the date and don’t miss this excellent opportunity! Have a look at our website for more information.
