New staff wellbeing programme "Juice" is launched

To continue to realise our vision we must ensure that all members of our faculty community have a strong sense of belonging, support and to understand that our personal wellbeing is critical to excellence in our studies or work.

It is because of this commitment to excellence that the faculty have launched the Juice Initiative, a wellbeing programme for staff. One of the most visible signs of this will be the Telford Exhibition Hall which now features table tennis which will be open to staff only between 12-2pm, but open to students at all other times. We hope that you will see the value of this initiative in the way that our Faculty works and continues to strive for excellence.

There are many staff with whom you will interact with daily (technical staff, support staff, research staff and academic staff) and many who you will rarely see but are working behind the scenes to make your time with as positive as it can be. I hope that you will agree that the staff members of our community make this a great place to study and will continue to during your time here.

 Over the past few months the university has engaged in a broad programme designed to promote wellbeing in the student community. These include:

  • Access to the university sports ‘Engage’ programme where students can try out different sports and activities;
  • Regeneration of Portland Building: Through consultation, over 5,000 current and prospective Nottingham students from all parts of the student community told us that it should be “a space about students” which is social, flexible and functional;
  • Societies running numerous events for students;
  • For those in University accommodation, there are social spaces in the halls of residences, and hall committees run events for students
  • The Healthy U programme focus on student wellbeing and offer events and run campaigns for student wellbeing

Within the Faculty, we have followed suit by seeking to promote belonging to your course, to your department and to the faculty by bringing you:

  • Design studios to provide local places to work and study which are attractive and flexible;
  • Launching the Engineering Student Experience Fund (ESEF) which seeks to support events, programmes or initiatives that will enhance – not only the student experience – but also our community within the Faculty of Engineering. (http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/engineering/experiencefund/index.aspx)

There are many staff with whom you will interact with daily (technical staff, support staff, research staff and academic staff) and many who you will rarely see but are working behind the scenes to make your time with us as positive as it can be. I hope that you will agree that the staff members of our community make this a great place to study and will continue to do so during your time here.
