The University Community is invited to a public lecture entitled Social Responsibility and Impact: Are Universities making a Difference?

Synopsis: Increasingly people are asking the question, “What are Universities for?”. The University of Manchester is unique in its mission in that Social Responsibility is one of its three core strategic goals in the Manchester 2020 Strategy, sitting equally alongside commitments to world-class research and outstanding learning and student experience.
During this talk, Professor Mativenga will give an overview of how the University of Manchester is making a difference to the social and environmental well-being of communities through teaching (and socially responsible graduates), research with impact and public events and activities. The main aim of the talk is to provide some examples and to inspire the academic communities of staff and students into action, and call upon business, local government and other stakeholders to partner in making a positive difference to our society.
