In the Global Engagement Office (GEO), we’ve been taking stock of the past academic year and planning for the new one. In July, we reported to Council on the progress of Principal Theme 6 of UCL 2034, the Global Engagement Strategy (GES). This week, we were due to present our global achievements and challenges at Academic Board but a busy agenda meant that we didn’t get the opportunity.
Council wanted to know the cost of implementing the GES, both through the work GEO does directly and through the other central offices like Student and Registry Services and Student Recruitment Marketing. The answer is £4.9m, which is less than half a percent of UCL’s overall expenditure.
