The International Museum Day of 2022 carries the slogan ”The Power of Museums”. One sub-theme is ”the power of innovating on digitalisation and accessibility”. And it is truly timely to ponder what this power is all about in relation to the digital.
What happens when 18 Finnish universities of applied sciences (UAS) put their heads together and start thinking of how to bring more talented students to Finland? The UAS Path offers a unique, co-operatively carried out programme, where students wishing to study in Finland can first taste the Finnish study experience from their home country, online, and move to Finland to complete the degree after that.
Today’s working life is undergoing changes, and we have a demographic structure that requires us to feel up to, and want to, work for a longer time. At the same time, we need more people in the labour market. How could employers, employees and leaders work together to obtain a socially viable working life? That was the theme of the alumni event “Alumnträffen 2022”.
The right to life is to be respected and Arcada opposes all forms of aggression - no matter where in the world it takes place. Together with the other higher education institutions in Finland, Arcada expresses its support for Ukraine, its citizens and its entire higher education community.
A high vaccination rate is one of our main weapons against the ongoing corona pandemic. Among Arcada's staff, students and alumni, there are a number of heroes who volunteer as vaccinators in their spare time. All in order to end the pandemic.
The new learning environment, Arcada Health Tech Hub, offers students, professional occupational therapists and physiotherapists, researchers and companies a space where they can come together around health technology. The centre is built with the support of donations to the fundraising campaign Arcada 25 launched in celebration of Arcada’s 25th anniversary.
Did you know that Arcada University of Applied Sciences (UAS) is the most international UAS in relation to its size in Finland? In fact, there are more than 60 nationalities represented on our campus in Arabianranta.
The Ministry of Justice and The Non-Discrimination Ombudsman are today launching an anti-racist campaign aimed at young adults. Arcada participates in the campaign by raising these issues in our channels and encouraging students and staff to share their thoughts and experiences of racism.
