The Civic University Network

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. Our 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.

The UPP Foundation’s agenda setting Civic University Commission recommended the establishment of the Civic University Network, to galvanise the growing Civic University movement, and reinvigorate and embed civic aspirations. Following the conclusion of the Commission, the UPP Foundation led a group of funders who awarded funding to Sheffield Hallam University. Since the Network was launched last April, the UPP Foundation has chaired the funders board – supporting its important work in its inaugural year.
