Welcoming students to Warwick with values-based activities


The Community Values Education Programme (CVEP) team developed this Toolkit to support those with responsibilities for planning induction activities and those with an interest in values with their goals of promoting a sense of community within departments. We previously hosted an in-person event to showcase these activities (and others) with over 50 staff members attending. Activities are to be facilitated by staff within the department. Activities can be adapted to suit the needs of your department, or take inspiration and create your own.
