Current events

ENLIVEN Engage Notice Learn Inspire Value Entertain and Network

UC Medical and Counselling are providing the opportunity for students and staff to come together over an interactive, community building,  lunchtime experience - to exchange ideas, discuss ‘hot topics’ in  science, literature and technology.
While Psychologists will host the sessions, students and staff are invited to play an active role.
We invite you to submit your ideas for a 50 min session, so that we might compile a program for Semester 2 – Tuesdays 11am-12.30pm.
If you are working on an innovative project, or have been involved in an exciting adventure or community activity we would love to hear about it.
If you have a favourite TED talk you would like to share and discuss, or perhaps a great debate topic that you/we could organise a couple teams around; we encourage you to submit your ideas to us.

We see this as an opportunity for students and staff to meet and interact less formally, a chance for newcomers to UC to engage, an opportunity to share knowledge , experiences, ideas, and your  multi-dimensional lives.

Please email or call Vicki de Prazer -   Senior Psychologist on 6201 2351
