Caledonian Club

Engaging with communities

The Caledonian Club is Glasgow Caledonian University’s multi-award winning widening participation and community engagement initiative, working across our local communities in Glasgow, London and New York.

In order to tackle below average progression rates into Higher Education, the Caledonian Club challenges perceived barriers to progression, providing positive and rewarding experiences within a higher education setting.

What We Do

We raise aspirations in young people and families, build key life skills and enhance the school curriculum by providing unique learning opportunities.

How We Do It

We work with with children and young people, from 3–18 years, in communities in Glasgow and London and deliver project-based activity in-school and campus.

Guiding Principle

In line with GCU’s motto, ‘For the Common Weal’, the Caledonian Club is committed to working in partnership with, and for the benefit of, local communities.
