Empathic engagement with others critically anchors learning to the real, messy, intricate needs of individuals and communities around the world.

We ask our students to consider individuals, communities and nations with empathy and respect and to try to see the world from the perspectives of others – whether they be marginalized individuals, authority figures, campaigners or world leaders

The Love element of our approach includes the following:

  • Listening
  • Questioning
  • Engaged communication
  • Persuasion, pitching and presenting
  • Networking
  • Team work
  • Leadership
  • Celebrating diversity

  • Adapting to different disciplinary and cultural working practices
  • Conflict management and negotiation
