Engaging our communities

By engaging and partnering with a range of people and organisations we are harnessing our knowledge and resources to make a difference in our local communities and wider society.

In Humanities our flagship centres, institutes and networks often work with external partners to address issues that make a difference within our communities, both locally and globally.

Business Engagement Services

The Humanities Business Engagement Services support a range of activities which facilitate mutually beneficial partnerships with industry, the public sector and third sector organisations.


As a Faculty and including our Schools and Institutes we run a wide ranging programme of public events, details of which can be found on our events pages.

School Governor Initiative

As a Faculty we actively contribute to the School Governor Initiative signature programme with over 40 of our Humanities colleagues volunteering as School Governors.
