EUA webinar ” Universities and civic engagement”

The SHEFCE project was presented by Ninoslav Scukanec Schmidt at the webinar of the European University Association entitled “Universities and Civic Engagement“ as part of the EUA webinar series: Universities and democracy: how to strengthen a crucial relationship”.
According to EUA’s “Universities without walls – A vision for 2030”, “affirming the civic role of universities will be an increasingly important part of societal engagement. Universities will remain supporters of pluralistic and democratic societies founded on open and evidence-based public debate. They will continue to uphold these values throughout all their missions and activities.”

What is the role of universities in fostering active citizenship? How can universities better engage with society and the communities around them? What new ways and formats are being used, and how can they be further spread? These and many more questions explored in the first webinar of the series.

  • Jana Bacevic, Assistant Professor, Department of Sociology, University of Durham, United Kingdom
  • Ninoslav Scukanec Schmidt, Founder and Executive Director, Institute for the Development of Education, Croatia
