Thank you!

Dear students and staff and external exhibitors,

I am writing to say a big, big thank you to everyone involved in helping bring about another successful Global Week 2017! The Global Lounge team really appreciated all of your help and how generous you were with your time, energy, ideas and expertise. We could not have done it without all of you!

Those who contributed to Global Week with events, activities and sessions include: Nottingham Trent International College; School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences; School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment; School of Art & Design; School of Arts and Humanities; Nottingham Business School; School of Science and Technology; School of Social Sciences; Nottingham Trent Students’ Union; Environment Team; NTU Sport; Careers and Employability; Santander Bank; Nottingham Trent Volunteering; NTU Music; Green Academy; Sustainability; Wellbeing Team (Chaplaincy); NTU Catering; Equality, Diversity and Inclusion; and The Libraries at City, Clifton and Brackenhurst.

I also wanted to be sure to thank those colleagues who worked behind the scenes to support Global Week: IDO, NTU Cleaners, Print Shop, Post Room, Purchasing, Facilities Management, Reception staff in the various buildings we used for Global Week, Central Marketing and Events including the Press Office, and Mike Williams for his help with our wayward gazebo.

Thanks also to those departments who shared and liked our comments on social media.

Please let me know if you feel I missed anyone out from the list above who did make a contribution to the week and should be thanked.

This year we had more student engagement than ever before and it was fabulous to see so many of our students in their traditional dress. The pride our international students have in their cultures was very evident and several of them mentioned how pleased they were to have a chance to represent their countries during their time at NTU. We also had a very popular UK stall run by two enthusiastic home students. I was also pleased to see many staff members stop by the cultural stalls during the week.

Finally, we may be in contact for feedback on Global Week to help with future planning. I hope you can take a few minutes to provide some feedback so that we can improve Global Week next year for our staff and students.
