Charter Day 2013 celebration

The Vice-Chancellor, Martin Bean, Charter Day Speech and panel discussion

Martin Bean
This event took place on 23rd April 2013 at 10:30am (09:30 GMT)
Berrill Lecture Theatre, The Open University, Walton Hall Campus, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

The Open University was established by Royal Charter on 23 April 1969, charging us with our mission ‘to promote the educational well-being of the community generally’. We have decided to begin a tradition of using this day as an occasion for the University to celebrate our history whilst looking forward to our future.

Martin’s Charter Day Speech will deliver his annual address to the University and be followed by a Q&A panel discussion – members of the panel will include current and recent OU students. The event is focussed on celebrating our students at the very heart of everything we do and Council members and other guests have been invited to join us for this session.

For those of you on the Walton Hall campus on Charter Day, please join us for a cutting of the Charter Day cake and drinks in the Hub Lecture Theatre at 12.15pm where you will also have the opportunity to visit the University Showcase consisting of more than 40 stands showcasing the latest projects and activities from across the University - we look forward to seeing you there
