UK: Launch of Civic University Network

November 15, 2020

The Civic University Network builds on the 2018 UPP Foundation Civic University Commission which challenged universities tore-shape their role and responsibility to their communities to realise their potential as drivers of a new civic agenda. The vision of the Civic University Network is to support universities to develop and embed civic aspirations at an institutional level, as well as working with government and strategic partners to ensure that a university’s geographic role and responsibility is used more effectively as an agent to drive positive societal change.

The Network will support universities through the sharing of best practice by hosting events, creating a peer-review scheme for civic engagement, and publishing reports and tool kits to guide the developmentand implementation of Civic University Agreements. The Network will enable universities to develop and access practical approaches to evidence capture, consultation, strategy, governance, accountability, and resourcing in relation to the role of universities and place-based agendas.
