Community Engagement Consultation

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 11:56:00 GMT

Would you like to help shape the development of The University of Manchester’s engagement with its local communities?

Recognising the inter-dependent and mutually-beneficial relationship between the University and its neighbouring communities, The University of Manchester is currently developing a new strategic framework for community engagement to better focus, target and measure its activities. These activities range from research partnerships, teaching programmes, culture and the arts, student volunteering, schools-liaison, sustainability, employment and skills support through to engagement with charities, businesses and the public sector.

The University is also embarking on a major capital programme over the next decade with three key construction partners, chiefly on its Oxford Road campus, and this will provide new opportunities for engagement. As part of this, we would like to invite local partners and stakeholders to help contribute to our work.

There are two opportunities for colleagues to attend and places will be allocated on a first-come-first served basis. Food and refreshments will be provided.

  • Either: Monday, 14 March 2016 from 12:30 to 14:00 - University Place (Room 3.204) - Oxford Road Manchester M13 9QQ Book here
  • Or: Tuesday, 22 March 2016 from 17:30 to 19:00 - Roscoe Building (Room 1.009) - Manchester, Greater Manchester M13 9P Book here

If you cannot come along and would like to feed into this work, you can return comments to before 1 April 2016, where we would be interested in your views on 1) What do you think are the most valuable activities or outcomes that the University delivers for its most local communities? 2) What can the University do more of, or differently, to enhance its contribution to its most local communities?
