ASPIRE

The student branch of the UN Academic Impact is known as ASPIRE: Action by Students to Promote Innovation and Reform through Education.

ASPIRE is a student-driven initiative and actively embodies UNAI’s principles within student communities around the world. Operating locally within their communities, the activities of each ASPIRE group contributes to UNAI’s overall message of unity and action to address global challenges.

ASPIRE personifies the saying, “Sharing a Culture of Intellectual Social Responsibility.” It connects student organizations and individuals to global opportunities through the United Nations, educational and academic institutions, and civil society groups that focus on the UNAI principles.

ASPIRE groups are directly affiliated to UNAI, and when their institution is a UNAI member, to it as well.

ASPIRE priorities above all else, activism and action by students to promote and support the ten universally accepted UNAI principles.

ASPIRE groups are encouraged to:

  • Reinforce, suggest or initiate activities that actively support one or more of the ten UNAI principles.
  • Participate in UNAI activities and initiatives, for example, the Classroom Conversation seminar series, and the “Unlearning Intolerance” discussion series.
  • Participate in conferences organized by UNAI and UNAI member institutions.
  • Contribute to the promotion of the ten UNAI principles via social media and UNAI platforms.
  • Let us know about your events ahead of time so we can assist where we can and afterwards so we can share news about your ASPIRE chapter on our digital platforms

EXPECTATIONS

There is no cost or fee for affiliation to the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI).

Participants in the initiative are expected to undertake to further, within their institutions, policies and programmes that reflect adherence to the principles governing the United Nations Academic Impact. This would specifically include:

  1. Undertaking one new activity each year, to actively address at least one of the ten basic principles of the United Nations Academic Impact. In many cases, such activities can emerge from a redefinition of, or fresh thrust to, existing projects and programmes.  Examples of activities could include research projects and papers, the hosting of a conference, the financing of participation of students in a specific United Nations activity in the field, or a specific action or activity on campus. Any activity which is sponsored or paid for by a United Nations entity in the context of its own work programme shall be excluded from consideration.
  2. Placing prominently upon the institution websites, or in periodic printed publications, details of such activity, highlighting its relationship to UNAI through the use of UNAI logos, UNAI Member and UNAI In Action. When publicizing an activity undertaken in support of one of the UNAI Principles, the “UNAI in Action” logo should be used; however, these activities can neither be commercial in nature nor be used for fund-raising purposes.
