Our role in the region
Sheffield Hallam University is at the heart of South Yorkshire, woven into the fabrib and culture of Sheffield and the surrounding area.
From our roots in the region almost 200 years ago, we continue that civic tradition through our leadership role and significant contribution to our region's economy, workforce, infrastructure, health, culture and environment.
As part of our commitment to our region, we have created a Civic University Agreement (PDF, 5.2MB). This drives our approach to regional priorities across key themes: economy and jobs, education and skills, health and wellbeing, and community and regeneration.
