Making a difference to our community

Social action in collaboration with the Municipality of Thessaloniki

The University of Sheffield International Faculty is shaped and inspired by society. We want to make a difference in the world that we live in. For this reason we embrace a bold vision for civic engagement in our local community and across the area of South East and Eastern Europe and aspire to improve lives and invest in community in a meaningful way. Students, faculty and staff are involved in an array of initiatives and opportunities that maximise the Faculty’s community activism and civic responsibility.

With this perspective, the International Faculty is involved in a series of social activities in close collaboration with the Municipality of Thessaloniki, where its main campus is located. We work closely with the Municipality of Thessaloniki, aiming at putting our knowledge, skills and resources at the service of the public. In the context of this strategic cooperation a series of initiatives have taken place:

  • Scholarships
    Two full (100%) Bachelor Scholarships, for academic year 20016-17, were granted to high school graduates from socially vulnerable groups of the city of Thessaloniki.
     
  • English language learning Programme for high school students by our English Studies Department
    A 3-year English language learning Programme offered without charge to a group of high-school students from financially weak families of Thessaloniki. The programme started running in 2016.
     
  • The ‘Donate food. Help a family.’ project
    In 2015 the International Faculty run a food donation charity, the ‘Donate food. Help a family.’ project to support the food bank of the Municipality of Thessaloniki. Our community strongly supported this initiative and a significant amount of food was donated to families in need.

    The International Faculty CITY College is closely collaborating with the Municipality of Thessaloniki for new initiatives and activities, investing its resources in the community.
