Graham Pullin and Corinne Hutton during the Hands of X project

Since our foundation in 1881, the University has been a university ‘for the city’ not just ‘of the city’. We recognise that effective engagement is achieved through strong and effective partnerships that anchor us in our community.

Our Museums, Archive, Cooper Gallery and Botanic Garden provide excellent access to the University’s work and research. Through Shabnam Wasim, our Community Engagement Officer, and the work of our Schools and research centres, we are embedding our University locally. Members of the public can contact with any enquiries they have, and find out more on our Get Involved page.
