We launched There Are No Grey Areas - a campaign highlighting our work to combat sexual and gender-based violence. Backed by Alison Thewliss MP, the poster and digital campaign challenges stereotypical views.

Students and staff worked together to create a digital poster campaign, entitled #GCUerasethegrey, which reiterates GCU’s zero-tolerance policy towards gender-based violence.

Leading model Connor Newall took to the runway to support the next generation of fashion designers at our annual Fashion Showcase. The Govan teenager, who works regularly in Paris, Milan and New York, showcased students’ work including 19th-century designs with a contemporary twist.

The School of Computing, Engineering and Built Environment won a prestigious Athena SWAN Award for its commitment to promoting gender equality among students and staff. It is our first School to be recognised with the Equality Challenge Unit award.

One of the UK’s leading scientists heard from our researchers and graduate students about their wide-ranging work. Sir Mark Walport, Chief Executive Designate of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), was on campus to meet with staff and students.
