The UFP hosts events that welcomes Fellows and celebrates their academic journey and achievements. In addition to formal annual events, informal gatherings take place throughout the programme duration with the Director of IIHS, UFP Faculty and invited guests.
All UFP and IIHS events and conferences were held online in 2020-21 due to the pandemic.
Every year, Fellows are officially welcomed to the Urban Fellows Programme in a day-long event. The spirit of diversity, inclusivity and interdisciplinarity of the UFP is emphasised and introduced to the Fellows through an official orientation ceremony, interactive conversations and fun-filled activities.
The UFP Graduation at IIHS is a day filled with ceremony, fun and recollections of the journey through the Programme. Faculty and staff across IIHS and the UFP attend this event to cheer the Fellows embarking on the next phases of their academic and professional lives.
The alumni day acknowledges the academic and professional achievements of our Fellows. It is a day for reunions, celebrations and reconnection with IIHS and the UFP. We are proud of our Alumnus, who are engaged in various sectors across the globe and look forward to building long-term engagements.
Informal events include Fellows dinner with the Director of IIHS, net-working events, and gatherings with UFP Faculty at major academic milestones like presentations and term-end sessions. Eminent artists, authors, speakers and guests interact directly with the Fellows at the larger IIHS events, in Masterclasses and in specific sessions organized by UFP Faculty within different classes.
