Civic University Network

Project Director: Greg Burke (Civic University Network)
Project Duration: 2020-2021

The Civic University Network builds on the 2018 UPP Foundation Civic University Commission which challenged universities to re-shape their role and responsibility to their communities to realise their potential as drivers of a new civic agenda. Sheffield Hallam University’s vision for the Civic University Network is to help make this ambition a reality – supporting universities to develop and embed civic aspirations at an institutional level, as well as working with government and strategic partners to ensure that a university’s geographic role and responsibility is used more effectively as an agent to drive positive societal change.

CRESR is leading a work stream for the CUN aimed at understanding and capturing universities’ civic impacts and establishing an approach to peer learning between civic universities.
