Launch of BU Proud in the community

Posted on Monday, March 2 2015

BU is very proud of the close relationship it has with the local community. Our staff, students and graduates play an integral part in both the local economy and local society.

This involves many close relationships built up with local organisations and our BU Proud in the community campaign will celebrate these links.

A launch event is being held at AFC Bournemouth on 5 March.

The new branding of our BU buses will be unveiled, celebrating BU graduates working with local organisations, and there will be a BU branded double-decker bus on site featuring Rob Mitchell, Commercial Director of AFC Bournemouth. Rob is also president of the Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) and has a degree in Leisure Marketing from BU. Other BU graduates from across the region who feature in the new campaign will also be attending.

Look out for the buses and posters around the region, featuring our graduates working in LV=; Lush; RNLI; Bournemouth Echo and Dorset LEP.

BU works closely, with businesses, voluntary groups, and the local community and the BU Proud in the community campaign will be an opportunity to communicate more about this work, engage new audiences and raise the profile of both BU and our successful alumni.
