This List supports Partnership communications between the University of Plymouth and the Plymouth University of the Third Age (U3A) The two learning communities have many principles in common and the Partnership aims to be a mutually beneficial arrangement. The University of Plymouth Community Engagement Strategy supports sharing and excitement about wider opportunities for learning in the Community. The strategy aims to help people transform their lives through education, empowering people to deliver their talents and provide opportunities to foster social inclusion. Creativity and innovation are embedded in all their activities which are delivered through partnership with business, the public sectors, community groups, and charities. The University of the Third Age (U3A) consists of self-help, self-managed lifelong learning co-operatives for older people no longer in full time work, providing opportunities for their members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups and to pursue learning, not for qualifications, but for enjoyment and the love of learning. Membership benefits include valuable opportunity for social engagement at a time of life when people can become isolated, the negative effects of which are well known. The U3A also aspires to work in partnership with other research and learning organisations. Activities includes collaboration in research, support for students from the local community and opportunities to share resources and learning opportunities.
