Welcome to Wikipedians at Imperial College. We are a group of Imperial students involved in the first UK Wikipedia student society, founded March 2011.
- Our Aim
We aim to add to content throughout Wikipedia via editing groups, where students explore academic or personal interests while developing their knowledge, team working and writing skills
- Our Vision
- Regular edit group meetups to share your editing experience
- Students working together on-line and in person to get the most out of discussions on editing articles in a common field. The result would be academic benefits, personal enjoyment and developing a wide array of skills
- Students benefiting from academics' guidance in editing Wikipedia
- Social events such as trivia nights and photography competitions in London
- Meetings with Wikipedians outside Imperial College, including alumni
- Increasing awareness of how to use Wikipedia, including in teaching programs, through the Campus Ambassadors program.
- Mutually beneficial initiatives with local museums through a GLAM ambassador.
- Starting a discussion with London academics about how academia and Wikipedia should perceive each other - the London Wikipedia Academy.
