The latest issue of InsideBU, the internal magazine for BU staff and students is out now.
Containing a mixture of news, interviews, events and features, InsideBU provides an insight into the activities taking place at the university. This issue takes a look at BU's impact and features interviews with our four Alumni of the Year Award winners to find out what impact BU had on them - and how they continue to influence the next generation of graduates. Other articles include a look at global opportunities for staff and students, sustainability success stories and how BU staff are involved in a wide range of research helping to shape the world around us, including; promoting responsibility within gambling, connection and identity, making an impact creatively and best practice in media reporting.
Hard copies are available around both campuses and you can also read it online - simply click on the arrows on the bottom right of the screen to expand it to a full page size.
