At The University of Manchester, public engagement is how we share ideas and knowledge, inspire discussion, debate and creativity, and inclusively involve the public in our work.
Our commitment to public engagement is supported by our unique strategic goal of social responsibility, and is embedded in our research and teaching practices.
We also do this through work at our pioneering cultural institutions – Manchester Museum, the Whitworth, Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre, and the John Rylands Research Institute and Library.
Our work to inspire high quality public engagement is reflected in our status as a Platinum Watermark institution with the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE).
