How will participating in this activity/opportunity allow students to make a positive difference to the communities that we serve?
Many of our societies are focused on charity work and are embracing GCU’s culture of social innovation by delivering services to the community. For example, the Radiography Society fundraise each year for local charities through bake sales and raffles. It has also worked with the Glasgow Science Centre to educate children about radiography.
