Sustainability & Social Responsibility

Our approach to creating a sustainable place to learn, develop, teach, conduct research, and to work and live productively.

We were England’s first civic university, one where students from all social and cultural backgrounds were accepted on an equal basis, and it is that strong spirit of social responsibility and commitment to community that has allowed us to grow and thrive ever since.

As a civic university, we embrace our unique role in contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The goals are “the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.”
