By coming together, as a force for change, we can tackle our world’s biggest challenges, today.

Join in with Birmingham In Action

We are taking action. Be a part of the University’s charitable fundraising and volunteering campaign. 

In 2019, thousands of staff, students and alumni joined together for the first ever University-wide photograph to celebrate the launch of Birmingham In Action. Since then, we have achieved so much together, from scholarships for students to new diagnosis and treatments for cancer.
