Where: UHI Outer Hebrides, Lews Castle Grounds, Stornoway

We would like to invite members of the Outer Hebrides community who can attend UHI Outer Hebrides in Stornoway to take part in a workshop which involves discussing with others about local mental health needs.

This workshop is part of a research study based upon work done in Texas by our partners at Texas A&M University (Kingsville). There are two workshops taking place: one here in the Outer Hebrides and the other in the Black Isle in Highland.

The University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) partnership has revealed a new visual identity today (Monday) to strengthen engagement with communities and market its offerings more effectively through a connected and recognisable brand family.

As well as new approaches to photography and design, the change features a new logo across campuses, based on the letters UHI, and an embedded plus sign and strapline: ‘where learning means more'.

Ten years on from establishing university status, UHI has built a strong foundation to move into a new strategic chapter founded on a ‘Daring to be different' ethos, affirming its role as a regionally focused partnership of independent colleges and research institutions covering the largest geographical area of any campus-based facility in the UK.

The new identity represents the first step towards the partnership being more engaged, connected and enterprising in its activity.

One of the leading further and higher educational establishment in the Highlands and Islands is to change its name next month.
Lews Castle College UHI will become UHI Outer Hebrides in a move designed to better represent the geographic reach of a college which has campuses in Stornoway, Barra, North Uist, Benbecula and, from August 2022, South Uist.
The rebranding follows a consultation process which included staff, students and a wide range of stakeholders and which demonstrated overwhelming support for the change of brand name.
