Mitesh Vagadia (Student Support and Wellbeing)
5 minute talk
The Student Health and Wellbeing (SHW) Community of Practice (CoP) is sponsored by the Registrar and Director of Student Support and Wellbeing and has two leads Mitesh Vagadia – Head of Student Support and Wellbeing and Madiha Sajid – Teaching & Learning Officer for MSc Health Psychology.
The purpose of the SHW CoP is
• To improve physical health, mental health, and wellbeing across the whole student body
• To empower all academic and administrative staff who have contact with students, so they are better to direct to appropriate services, and so they can design programmes, courses, and administrative processes with wellbeing in mind
This CoP is for colleagues across UCL who have some knowledge or experience of SHW, or want to learn more about it for they own career development and are in a student facing role, have regular contact with students, or work on a function that has significant impact on SHW. Colleagues can contribute to the four CoP projects and promote the projects in their own departments and networks or simply be a wider member and have access to the MS Teams page which provides regular updates related to SHW.
The 3 – 5 minute pitch will be used to promote the SHW CoP and encourage colleagues to become members.
