Community and Collaboration
The University's strong and valued relationships with the local and regional communities are the foundation stones upon which our global vision is based. The Cardiff University community is a world-wide one, as indicated by the breadth of our international links and the impact of our work internationally. This serves only to strengthen the importance we attach to the local communities of which we form an important part, whether within the city of Cardiff or throughout Wales.
This new section provides only a glimpse at some of our interaction and collaborations. It is intended that these pages will increasingly serve as means of further developing and recognising these important links.
- Health Of A Nation
The University has an important role to play in promoting and protecting the health of the nation. This is most obvious through the work of our health related Schools, which undertake internationally distinguished biomedical, clinical and health services research and provide professional education and training in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, optometry, nursing and the allied professions.
- Supporting Good Causes
Through participation in corporate-led fundraising organised by the University and the Students' Union and, on a much larger scale, through their individual support of a wide range of charities and community groups, Cardiff University staff and students give active support to numerous good causes.
- University For All
Inclusiveness and diversity are among our cherished values and the University has a good record of welcoming students from a wide range of social, ethnic and other backgrounds.
