So, you know about the project. But why get involved? Well…
The Civic University Network was set up by Sheffield Hallam University in order to encourage stronger links between universities and their local areas. As anchor institutions and non-profit organisations, it was proposed that universities didn’t just have a duty to teach but to be a key resource and positive force in their local areas.
So far, nearly 60 UK universities have signed up to be part of the official Civic Network. UEA has signed up but has not yet sealed the deal by writing a Civic University Agreement – we first want to tour the region asking what you, our local community, want. We’ll use our gathered knowledge to tailor our agreement specifically to our local area.
Hopes for the Future
We want to help Norfolk and Suffolk thrive. This project aims to gather the ideas needed to start making good things happen. But we can’t do it without you!
Come along to one of our events by registering below. We will be visiting Great Yarmouth, Ipswich, Kings Lynn, UEA campus and more. Share your ideas, meet like-minded people, and help us become a better institution for your area. Tell us how to do better.
