Engagement

Engagement is embedded in our work, playing a vital role in enhancing the quality of our core activities of research, education and scholarship.

Engagement activity generates co-operation, co-production and communication beyond those who would normally engage with the University.

Public engagement describes the myriad of ways in which the activity and benefits of higher education and research can be shared with the public. Engagement is by definition a two-way process, involving interaction and listening, with the goal of generating mutual benefit

National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE)

We work with a wide range of partners including, service users, clinical partners, professional bodies and local and national industry across all nine of our healthcare professions with the aim of generating public health and wellbeing.

Our aim is to engage with a wide audience to increase the real-world impact of our research and scholarship activities, including work at a local, national and international level.

Through our engagement activity, we aim to achieve mutual benefit by enhancing:

  • student experience
  • personal and professional development of academic staff
  • research impact
  • knowledge exchange with public
  • health and wellbeing of Society
  • links with local communities as our Civic Mission.
