What does it mean to belong at King’s?
Our Principal, Professor Shitij Kapur, has provided us with an exciting opportunity: an open invitation to suggest ways to strengthen the community at King’s by pitching your ideas.
As our university is constantly evolving, we all have a chance, even a responsibility, to shape our shared experience. This quote from Margaret Mead encapsulates the spirit of our endeavours here at King's, and our commitment to effect positive change.
What would you like to see change to help strengthen belonging at King’s?
This might be something small, something linked to your own department, or something related to the Students’ Union. It might be something huge, like re-designing the campus layout. It might be changes to the physical space or how people interact. We welcome all ideas at this stage of the project, and will be looking to seed fund a number of initiatives to bring them to life, other ideas not selected will be fed-back at an institutional level with an aim to trial some initiatives through collaboration with services across the University.
By offering us your ideas, you will be in with a chance of winning one of five £20 King’s Food credits.
So, what would you like to change to improve belonging and build a stronger sense of community at King’s?
How can I pitch my ideas?
You can pitch your ideas by completing this form.
What will you do with my ideas?
All ideas collected here will be collated and shared back with the King’s community, including senior leadership who will identify ideas to take forward.
Be At King’s will review ideas, identify those that might be implemented and invite you to collaborate with us through a series of tailored ideas development workshops, to turn your ideas into reality.
As well as pitching your ideas, you can join us as a BE Ambassador. We are recruiting a small team of students to work with us, in paid roles, to facilitate creative conversations among peers around belonging at King’s. Do get in touch, email BeAtKings@kcl.ac.uk.
Does your work in some way tell us something about belonging? We are keen to hear ideas from all perspectives and keen to engage in the broadest possible dialogue. What does belonging mean for you? Complete the form to let us know.
Submissions open until 31 December 2023.
