Age Friendly Academy contributes to Strathclyde Award Win

The University of Strathclyde has become the first university to be awarded ‘University of the Year’ at the Times Higher Education Awards 2019 for the second time, beating off stiff competition from universities around the country.

The award recognises the University’s overall strategy of engaging with business, industry and government, investing in students and developing socially progressive policies.

We are delighted that The Centre for Lifelong Learning played a part in this success, with the Centre’s Age-Friendly Academy being named as one of the influencing factors in the winning bid, framed within the University’s ‘socially progressive’ agenda.

The Age-Friendly Academy was launched in 2017, and underpins the University’s founding principle of providing ‘a place of useful learning, open to all’ through the delivery of the following key areas; 

  • Learning, personal development and volunteering
  • Ageing-related research
  • Intergenerational work
  • Expanding social networks and building new partnerhsips
