Ustinov College Update - July 2020


As Easter Term draws to a close, we hope you and your families are safe and well. Easter Term has been unlike any other at Ustinov College, with support, wellbeing activities, social events and scholarly activity being delivered online for Ustinovians.

We are grateful for the enthusiasm of our students, scholars and staff in delivering the wider student experience, as well as for the support of our alumni community during this unprecedented time.

In particular, we would like to thank alumni who have contributed their stories to the latest edition of ‘The Ustinovian’ which was published earlier this month. The Ustinovian features a number of articles including a review of our Black History Month Guest Lecture, the greening of Sheraton Park, and the alumni update! You can access the latest version online here.

This term, we have enjoyed a number of online activities, including a wide range of social events organised by the Graduate Common Room, such as the famous Ustinov Quizzes and Ustinov Live, and numerous scholarly events organised by Global Citizenship Programme Scholars.

Highlights include celebrations for the World Day for Cultural Diversity (Ustinov Intercultural Forum), a discussion of Brain Biases (Café Scientifique), a talk on Online Learning (Seminar Team) and a discussion panel on Decolonising Academia (Café des Arts). We look forward to further events from the GCP Team over the coming weeks, including an online version of the International Dress Party!

We always like to hear from our alumni and friends – you can contact us at ustinov.alumni@durham.ac.uk!
