Friends of Hope Winter 2011

Inside: Alumni Art Exhibition - Newest Honoraries - Campus News

Welcome to the Winter 2011 issue of Friends of Hope A word from the Vice-Chancellor A new academic year always heralds a period of excitement about the opportunities and challenges which lie ahead. However, this year in particular promises to be very interesting as the University sector moves towards 2012/13 and the new arrangements for tuition fees which are to be brought in by the Government. Although we fundamentally disagree with this approach, I can assure you that Liverpool Hope has acted decisively and proactively to ensure that we remain in excellent financial health and that we have both the facilities and, most importantly, expert and inspirational people to deliver a top-notch student experience. While we look to the future with excitement, we do so in the knowledge that we must always remember our roots.

most heartened in recent months to see the continued active engagement of Hope Alumni from our three founding colleges and also more recent graduates of the University. I was particularly pleased to hear of the generosity of the Christ’s Pioneers Group in funding a scholarship in memory of Fr Louis Hanlon, the first principal of Christ’s College. This is just one example of how the wider Hope community can continue to work together to ensure that Hope remains special and I encourage you all to be our ambassadors, with the understanding that you will always be “friends of Hope.” With best wishes, Professor Gerald J. Pillay Vice-Chancellor & Rector

An Ever-Brightening Hope

Thanks to the generosity of our Alumni and Friends of Hope, the University’s annual fund, A Brighter Hope, continues to grow year on year. Funded through oneoff or regular donations, A Brighter Hope supports an increasing number of student scholarships, provides enhanced library and learning resources for Hope students and enables the University to further develop Global Hope, its charitable programme which addresses community educational needs in overseas developing countries. Launched 3 years ago, the fund has already received donations from over 600 Alumni and Friends of Hope, many of whom

give on a monthly basis. In this time, it has funded more than 40 scholarships. It has also enabled more than a dozen students to undertake a Global Hope visit to places such as India, Uganda, Malawi and Sri Lanka, making a real difference to communities of school children and teachers.

Hope’s Newest Honoraries On Tuesday 19th July, during Hope’s Summer Graduation Ceremony, an honorary degree was awarded to a Muslim scholar and leading voice of moderate Islam. Dr Ali Gomaa, the Grand Mufti of Egypt (pictured top right), who is one of the most respected religious authorities in the entire Muslim world, was given a Doctorate of Humane Letters (honoris causa) in the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King in Liverpool. On Wednesday 20th July, the University awarded an honorary degree to Father Bienvenido Nebres, S.J, former President of Ateneo de Manila University and campaigner for social justice in the Philippines (pictured centre right), acknowledging his contributions to education and social justice in South East Asia as well as his own outstanding academic record. He has also played a

key role in the strengthening of basic education and, especially, science and technology in the Philippines. The Graduation Ceremonies concluded on 21st July with the third and final celebration in Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral. The University marked the occasion by awarding an honorary Doctorate of Divinity to the Leader of the Catholic Church in England, the Archbishop of Westminster, Most Reverend Vincent Nichols (pictured bottom right) for his commitment to the education and the protection of children and vulnerable adults. For more information and for photographs from this summer’s Graduation ceremonies, please visit www.hope.ac.uk/news.

Inaugural Alumni Art Exhibition Weekend, 3rd - 5th June 2011 The inaugural Hope Alumni Art Exhibition took place at Hope Park in June of this year. The brainchild of Steffie and Mike Shields, alumni of Christ’s College, the exhibition was open to all alumni and Friends of Hope who were invited to submit pieces of work in one or more of the three categories: 2D; 3D; and Photography. Scores of submissions were received and a panel of judges at the University accepted 45 pieces of work to be exhibited. The University’ impressive new EDEN building was chosen as the venue – its

spaciousness and abundance of natural light being deemed perfect for such an event. Three key events over the weekend of 3-5 June gave focus to the Exhibition: a private viewing on the Friday evening; a talk by Martin Greenland, contemporary artist and member of the exhibition’s judging panel, on the Saturday afternoon; and the gala dinner and Awards ceremony on the Saturday evening. The whole event was an unmitigated success and we intend to stage a second exhibition in late November / early December 2012.

Judging Panel One of the most pleasing aspects of the Art Exhibition was that the University was able to secure a very high profile panel of judges. Mike McCartney, famous photographer and brother of Paul, agreed to lead the judges in their consideration of the Photography exhibits. He was joined by Martin Greenland, contemporary artist and previous winner of the prestigious John Moores Prize, and Joe Riley, ex Arts editor of the Liverpool Echo, both of whom focused on the 2D category. After

viewing the exhibition, the panel engaged in a very lively discussion and all fought hard to push forward their particular favourites – a sign that they had been impressed by the standard of the pieces exhibited.

Artist’s Talk One of the highlights of the inaugural Alumni Art Exhibition was the inspiring talk given by renowned contemporary artist, Martin Greenland. An audience of over 40 sat spellbound in the EDEN

Theatre as Greenland discussed his career and work to date, giving a real insight into the events, relationships and places which have inspired him. He described and deconstructed some of his key works and spoke of his experiences in winning some of the growing number of major awards and accolades he has received for his work and the effect those have had on his career. Following the talk, the artist patiently and informatively answered a wide range of questions and took the time to engage with many of the guests at the awards dinner that followed.

Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony Saturday 4th June

The weekend culminated in a Gala Dinner and awards ceremony on Saturday evening. Exhibiting artists and their guests, along with organisers and the judging panel, attended a drinks reception before enjoying a lovely dinner in the University’s restaurant. Following the dinner, Martin Greenland and Mike McCartney announced those

artists whose work had been recommended and highly recommended in each category before naming the joint winners of the Hope University Art Exhibition. Dr Susan Jones (Portrait of Mary Photography) and John Bennett (Line of Defence - 2D) shared the first prize of £1500.

Friends of Hope Arts Foundation Scholarship As a result of Liverpool Hope’s inaugural Alumni Art Exhibition last Summer, we are delighted to announce the award of a new Arts Foundation Scholarship. This was funded by entry fees, commission on sold exhibition work and the generous donations of those who attended the excellent event. The first recipient of this scholarship will receive the award during a ceremony at the University’s Foundation Day celebrations in January.

Mount Pleasant Teacher Training College Reunion 1961-1964

50 years ago in October 1961, 100 students commenced their teacher training in Our Lady’s College in Mount Pleasant in Liverpool. Now, 50 years later, 31 of those young ladies met to celebrate this landmark at the Childwall Campus of Liverpool Hope University. Although name badges were provided, faces were so easily recognisable that it was hard to believe that almost 50 years had passed since some of us had met. Whilst it is hard to grasp that half a century has passed, it was wonderful to catch up with “old friends”.

Following a welcome from the ViceChancellor, Professor Pillay, the group made its way to Hope Chapel for Mass. Lunch followed in Hope Restaurant where the air was buzzing with the sounds of laughter as people caught up the news of the last 50 years. For those who wished, a bus was provided to take people to the Aigburth Halls of Residence where we were able to tour both the old and new blocks. Stories of past escapades abounded and, although modernised, the building layout was basically the same and memories came flooding back. And so back to Hope restaurant where afternoon tea was provided and the chatting went on into the late afternoon. Addresses were swapped with promises to email copies of the many photographs taken. A wonderful day, celebrating fifty years since we first met up in 1961 at Mount Pleasant! It was so good to renew old acquaintances.

50 years on… On Saturday 8th October, over 20 alumni from the year group 1959-1961 celebrated 50 years since they completed their training at Mount Pleasant Teaching Training College. Led by Sr Margaret McMahon, the group met for tea and coffee and some reminiscing before heading to a Mass celebrated by Bishop Vincent Malone. Following Mass, lunch was served leaving even more time to chat amongst friends and catch up on news.

If you would like to arrange a reunion based at Hope, please contact [email protected] ac.uk. Alternatively if you are organising a reunion off site, let us know and we can feature your group in the next Friends of Hope magazine.

Thank you!

Match Funding Scheme Closes At the end of July, the Government brought the curtain down on its successful Match Funding Scheme for voluntary giving to UK Universities. Liverpool Hope benefited greatly from this scheme, attracting over £300,000 of “free money” from the Government. All of this income, along with your generous donations, continues to support the University’s strategic aim of ensuring that the student, staff and alumni experience remains first class.

the Arts and Humanities and Education faculties.

The scheme has enabled Hope to increase the number of named scholarships it awards and has supported the enhancement of library resources, Global Hope (the University’s overseas charitable work), and a number of academic projects, notably in

Also, please remember that by continuing to gift-aid your donations, the University can claim an additional 25% of the value of your gifts from HMRC without any affect on your finances.

None of this would have been possible without the extremely generous support of our Alumni and Friends of Hope and we would urge you to continue to support the University, its students and projects and help us to maintain our position as a university of choice with an inspiring learning environment.

A huge thank you to everyone who donated to ‘A Brighter Hope’ during the fundraising telethon held in June 2011. We had a wonderful team of 7 students who all worked extremely hard. Calling took place over 8 evenings with 500 former students being spoken to. We found out what people had been up to since leaving and updated them on Hope as it is today. We had a magnificent £6,000 pledged in total and the majority of this has been received. We would urge those who have not fulfilled their pledge to do so as soon as possible. We plan to hold another campaign in the near future and look forward to catching up with more of our Alumni.

Arrivals weekend! 24th – 25th September saw Hope’s newest students descend on both the Hope Park and Creative Campuses for the first time. They are the latest students to take advantage of the many improvements at the University. Fresh Hope, the refectory, refurbished last year now has brand new kitchens. There are now newly planted gardens behind the EDEN building and halls of residence have been decorated and refurbished. We are sure that the students will thoroughly enjoy their time at Hope and wish them well.

Professional Development

As part of our commitment to supporting employers and their staff from all sectors of the economy, the University continues to expand its portfolio of Professional and Business Development programmes and consultancy provision. To this end, a number of key appointments have been made to support this work in each of its faculties (Education, Science and Social Sciences and Arts & Humanities) and the expanded team of CPD directors will make it easier for organisations and individuals to access our professional expertise.

A wide range of accredited and non accredited programmes, based upon inquiry and research into practice, enables professionals, practitioners and teachers to progress in their careers and are designed to affect a real and lasting practical impact on the organisation. To discover the extensive range of CPD and business development opportunities available through Hope, either contact the University’s Business Gateway on 0151 291 3480 or access the faculty pages on Hope’s website (www.hope.ac.uk/faculties).

Fr Louis Hanlon Foundation Scholarship Fr Louis Hanlon is a key figure in the history of Liverpool Hope University. He was the first principal of Christ’s College, one of Hope’s founding institutions. After undertaking much of the planning for the opening of the country’s first mixed sex Catholic Teacher Training College, Fr Hanlon and his hand-picked team welcomed the first cohort of Christ’s students in 1964. Tragically, Fr Hanlon was killed in a road accident only three months after Christ’s College opened. Almost 50 years on, he continues to be remembered, both by the University and by the first cohort of Christ’s students. Through their generosity, these Christ’s Pioneers have funded a foundation scholarship in Fr Hanlon’s name. The Scholarship will be awarded in January at the University’s Foundation Day celebrations.

Hope in London As you may be aware, Liverpool currently has its own Embassy in London. The Liverpool Embassy project is being delivered by Liverpool City Council, Liverpool Vision and Downtown Liverpool in Business. It’s an idea that has caught the imagination of the city’s civic leaders and private sector businesses. Following the success of Liverpool’s participation at World Expo in Shanghai, it was the next logical step - another milestone in positioning the city as a growing and internationally significant business destination. On Thursday 7th July, Hope Alumni who reside and work in London were invited to the Liverpool Embassy in London for a networking event. Alumni of Liverpool’s three universities attended the first event of its kind, which proved to be a great opportunity to meet with other alumni that studied in Liverpool, and hear from guest speaker Ian Ayre, Chief Executive at Liverpool Football Club, about the Business of Football. Liverpool Vision also outlined the city of Liverpool’s plans to attract investment. For more information about the Embassy, please visit: www.liverpoolinlondon.com

Alumni Profile: Alanna Cawston Alanna Cawston, who graduated from Hope in 2008 with a BA Hons in Theology and Religious Studies with Philosophy and Ethics, now runs a charity and also works for a Labour Peer of the House of Lords, Lord Greville Janner. ‘I was very lucky with my job’ says Alanna. ‘Just before I graduated, I was accepted onto a three month voluntary Researchers Internship, which gave me the opportunity to have a “crash course” in politics and assist in the numerous projects, both political and communal, that Lord Janner works for. After 3 remarkable months, I was asked to return as a Researcher. ‘I began to work more for the Commonwealth Jewish Council (CJC). This has been a fantastic opportunity and has given me the chance to run a charity, organising events, writing newsletters, speeches, communicating with top level figures and more. Alanna now divides her time between the CJC and a new role as the Political Aide for Lord Janner. She believes that despite not directly using the course subjects she studied at Hope, all the knowledge and practice picked up at Hope gave her an edge: ‘My course made me more aware of issues, culture, as well as skills in writing and speaking - which I use daily in my job. All these experiences have given me a confidence to become who I am.’

More Developments at Hope Park

Upcoming Events Summer Music Evening The Development Office is organising an evening of music in the Chapel on 28th June 2012. All will be welcome. More information to follow but for now – save the date, and keep an eye on the website for details!

Christ’s Reunion As part of the continued development of the Hope Park campus, the old Keswick office block was demolished last year. In its place, a beautiful new garden has been created. This new facility, adjacent to the Rector’s Lawn, really adds to the garden campus environment. Complete with a sundial, statue and several benches, it provides a peaceful and contemplative space for staff, students and visitors.

Alongside the garden, the University is undertaking a large redevelopment of the Derwent Building and EDEN Conference Centre. The Derwent will have three distinct areas, including eating space and a hotel style lounge bar. The current ‘bridge link’ will become a habitable space, with a seating area. The Keswick block will contain 17 en suite rooms, offering four star quality accommodation, reserved for conference use.

Conor Hodge is organising a reunion for his class of 1970-1974 for September 2012. Please contact Clare Morgan on [email protected] if you are interested and she will pass your details to Conor.

In Memoriam Peter Lawman RIP Ex staff and students will be saddened to hear of the death of Peter Lawman on 29th September. Peter was Head of Drama at S. Katharine’s College and taught Willy Russell in the early 70s. Next summer, through the Service and Leadership Award, whereby students commit to an extra-curricular programme designed to recognize the value of service work in the UK and overseas, Global Hope will continue the strong links with its traditional partners such as SOS Children’s Villages UK, the Tibetan community in India, the Sisters of Notre Dame, Mountains of the Moon University and Missao Ramacrisna. New collaborative projects will be developed with other organizations and groups as Global Hope’s service and community work evolves.

He became head of the newly-combined colleges that constituted the Liverpool Institute of Higher Education. Peter retired in 1997 after a lifetime in education. May he rest in peace.

Sister Therese Hartley RIP The Sisters of Notre Dame of the Provinces of Peru and Britain regret to announce the death of Sister Therese Hartley, aged 79 years, on the 10th October. Therese taught in the English Department of Mount Pleasant Training College before being sent to Peru. She became a pioneering member of the SND Peruvian Foundation, where she worked for more than 40 years. May she rest in peace.

Hope Academy Opens

Gold Medal for Jenny Meadows Former Hope student Jenny Meadows won a gold medal in the 800m at the Aviva Birmingham Grand Prix on Sunday 10th July. Jenny, who graduated from Hope in 2002 with a degree in Sport Studies with English, told the Guardian “It’s all to play for (at the IAAF World Championships) in Daegu, Korea this year. It would be great if I could surpass the bronze that I got two years ago.”

Liverpool Hope University-sponsored secondary school, Hope Academy, is now open, with over 1,300 pupils starting the academic year.

Hope appoints new Professor of Biblical Studies Fr Henry Wansbrough, a Benedictine monk of the Abbey of Ampleforth, has been appointed Alexander Jones Professor of Biblical Studies at Liverpool Hope University. Prior to his appointment at Hope, Fr Wansbrough was for 14 years Master of St Benet’s Hall in Oxford. He lectured on New Testament in the University

and served as Chairman of the Theology Faculty. For a dozen years he was a member of the Pope’s Biblical Commission. He is currently Executive Secretary of the Roman Catholic International Commission for Preparing an English-language Lectionary (ICPEL), and a member of the Anglican Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC III).

The Academy in Newton-le-Willows is a joint Catholic and Church of England school, sponsored by both Churches and Liverpool Hope University in partnership with St. Helens Council. CPD and research will play a central role in the new academy: the school will be involved in Hope’s research and staff there will be supported in their research by the University.

Liverpool Hope University Press Publications The Christ’s College Pioneers, written by Mike Hopper, one of the original cohort of Christ’s College students who began their studies at the College in 1964, looks at the planning and early operations of the first mixed Catholic Training College in the UK and throws light on some of the characters who worked and studied at Christ’s.

Among those graduating from Hope this summer were mother and daughter Sandra and Amanda Clarke (pictured). Sandra graduated with a degree in Social Pedagogy and Social care. She writes: ‘Hope welcomes people of any background, any age; you’re treated with respect.’ ‘I’d tell any mature students thinking of coming to Hope not to be put off. It was scary for me at first but don’t be put off! People here may be younger but they don’t see your age – they see you as a fellow student.’ Amanda graduated with a degree in Social Work. She writes: ‘I liked the intimacy on my course. We got more support in these smaller groups’.
