Civic Mission

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

Civic Mission and Engagement activity generates co-operation, co-production and communication beyond those who would normally engage with the University. We work with a wide range of partners including, service users, clinical partners, professional bodies, industry both local and international.

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

  • Improving the health and well-being of communities in Wales and beyond.
  • Develop clinical practitioners and enriching clinical practice.
  • Influence health through our research.
