Staffordshire University is going global with a programme packed full of free events to start the new decade.

The spring calendar showcases the University’s worldwide impact, with the return of the popular ‘Profs in the Pav’ talks, commemorative events, plus a range of exciting lectures from academics and public figures.

2020 marks the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, and Staffordshire University is joining colleagues across the globe to shine a spotlight on the sector. Celebrations kick off with a talk this week by Visiting Professor Ann-Marie Cannaby, Chief Nurse at the Royal Wolverhampton Hospital, at the University’s Centre of Excellence in Healthcare Education, Stafford.Two hundred years may have passed since the birth of Florence Nightingale, but patient care and safety remain the most important influencing factors within the fields of nursing and midwifery. Professor Cannaby will use her keynote presentation to explore curriculum developments.

On Monday 27 January a special event will mark Holocaust Memorial Day, with members of the Staffordshire University community sharing their experiences of visiting Srebrenica, where genocide occurred during the Bosnian War in 1995.

The same week, on Thursday 30 January, firearms expert Dr Rachel Bolton-King will deliver a lecture about her Churchill Fellowship travels to South Africa, USA and France. Dr Bolton-King will explore how new technologies and ways of working can further reduce gun and violent crime in the UK and internationally.

Other highlights include a public lecture from broadcaster and wheelchair basketball player Ade Adepitan MBE, which will take place on Tuesday 25 February. From surviving polio as a child to winning a bronze medal at the 2004 Summer Paralympics in Athens and a gold medal at the 2005 Paralympic World Cup in Manchester, Ade will share the ambitious and inspirational story of how he became a global campaigner against racism and disability discrimination.

James Morgan, Head of Communications at Staffordshire University, said: “This series of events celebrates the impact that our Connected University is making, not only within our local communities but also on a global level.

“Our academics are conducting a range of world-leading research – from shaping our understanding of history through archaeological investigation to pioneering new ways to solve and reduce crime. Public events represent an excellent way to bring people together and forge new connections across communities. Don’t miss out – come along and discover more about what we are doing.”
