“My responsibility is to encourage students to get involved with organizations; we are trying to increase the touch point between the University and a wide business community. We are very pleased to welcome the partners and to show our facilities which are increasingly been developed. We are proud to be part of the initiative and we are very excited about the potential for developing relationships between the institutions. In particular, we are very motivated to develop Challenge Academy. Within the Faculty, last year, over 300 students had an experience in the platform”, said Dr. Robert Harris, Principal Lecturer for Employability on WLV Faculty of Social Sciences.
