Embedding business and community engagement (BCE)
…Through Business Process Improvement and Internal Engagement, or ‘Embedding BCE’ for short, was a project commissioned to investigate the integration of BCE functions within further and higher education institutions.
At this point you may find yourself wondering, ‘What is BCE?’ If this is the case, you may find it useful to visit JISC for further information on our working definition of BCE. The JISC BCE Programme provides further information on current/future projects related to this area. One thing is for certain, BCE is not something new to further and higher education. It’s an integral part of what the sector aims to achieve and links very closely with both ‘Learning and Teaching’ and ‘Research’.
Findings from this resource are based upon work carried out within our five partner institutions:
- University of Glamorgan
- Keele University
- Newcastle University
- Shrewsbury College of Arts & Technology
- University of Strathclyde
This resource distils the learning from working with each of our five institutional partners and provides:
- Resources to review business and community engagement activities within your own institution
- An explanation of barriers/issues associated with business and community engagement activities within further and higher education
