Recent International Developments in Community-University Engagement: a conversation with Budd L Hall, Co-Chair of the UNESCO Chair in Community Based Research

Summary
Professor Hall, from the University of Victoria, Canada, is joint holder of the UNESCO Chair in Community Based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education with Dr. Rajesh Tandon. http://unescochair-cbrsr.org/

He will share information and invite a conversation on two of the most recent studies and reports in which he and Rajesh have been involved under the aegis of their UNESCO Chair. The first is their study/book on “Knowledge and Engagement: Building Capacity for the Future Generations of Community Based Researchers” and the second is the newly released GUNi 6th World Report on Higher Education: "Towards Socially Responsible Higher Education-Balancing the Global and the Local".

FAQs

1. What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

St Chad’s College is no. 19 on the Durham map.

If travelling by car, we recommend you park in the Prince Bishops multi-storey car park marked ‘P’ just to the right of the Market Place on the map. From the Market Place, head up Saddler Street towards the Cathedral. Don’t take the right turn up to the cathedral, but continue up Saddler Street into North Bailey. Pass Hatfield College on the left and the Durham Heritage Centre in a former church. Pass the turning into Bow Lane on the left and then St Chad’s is a few doors along at 18 North Bailey on the left. It may be possible to arrange limited pre-booked parking nearby for people with mobility problems. Please get in touch to arrange this in advance.

From the railway station it takes about 15 minutes to walk, or there are buses to the cathedral or taxis outside the North bound platform.

Further directions can be found here.
