International Staff Week at RU


The International Office at RU, hosted the 4th International Staff week from 11th -13th of April, and welcomed 35 participants from 12 countries.

This year’s theme was “Wellbeing and Accountability.” The 3-day program included the opportunity to learn about Reykjavik University as a whole and our academic and administrative departments.  Guests had the opportunity to get to know each other at a networking reception and shared dinners, as well as gaining insight into the nature of Iceland during a tour of Þingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir, which ended with a swim in the Secret Lagoon in Flúðir.

Participants divided into groups by field of work, and joined the staff of the International Office, Student Counselling, Marketing and Communications, Research and Development, Teaching Affaires and HR for specialist workshops.

The program ended with ocean swimming in Nauthólsvík, for those who were brave enough, while the others observed with great enthusiasm.
