Discussing public engagement at our Public Engagement Forum

Many people across the University support our community in their public engagement work. This includes our security and cleaning teams at events; Safety Services who advise on managing risk; and colleagues that help us plan, communicate and record our engagement work.

Our public engagement professionals are people with a dedicated responsibility for supporting advising or delivering engagement. They meet regularly at the University’s Public Engagement Network to foster collaboration and co-ordinate our engagement work.

Through the Public Engagement Network, our Public Engagement Forum, and groups in individual Schools, we are working together to share best practice and create opportunities where people work more closely between different areas of the University.

The University provides opportunities to engage with the public through our supported events and festivals. Funding is also available to help our staff and students develop their own activities. Through a variety of budgets including our Public Engagement Seed Funds and those held in Schools and Directorates.
