Welcome to the webpages of the Public Engagement team at the University of Dundee.

We work with staff and students from all Schools and Directorates, and with partners orgnaisations across Scotland. We recognise the importance of sharing and involving others in our research, cultural engagement and scholarship.

The University's commitment to public engagement is communicated in our Public Engagement Strategy. The Strategy sets out how we support our staff and student to engage with audiences, communities and organisations.

We provide advice and training for staff and students looking to engage with public audiences. Each year we run regular events such as Discovery Days, Bright Club, Dundee Arts Café and Café Science Dundee, to support the development of skills and confidence. 

Alongside our community partners, we lead the University’s community engagement programme.
