Purposeful partnerships

We will

  • be a leading civic university with a clear sense of purpose and place in the cities and communities we serve, locally and globally
  • make a key contribution to inclusive sustainable development as a partner of choice for like-minded organisations and networks in the public, private and third sectors
  • ensure our partnerships deliver mutual benefit and enrich our education and research offerings, leveraging them to offer work experience opportunities on all programmes
  • be recognised as a leader in capacity building and upskilling, co-creating with employers and academic institutions in local and international contexts
  • build on our positive partnership with the Students’ Association to embed a partnership approach across the University and ensure the student voice is at the heart of our development and success
