Institutional Strategy & Leadership

This theme explores how institutions’ top-level governance and strategies reflect their civic commitment to ensure they make the difference they want, promoting the need for civic priorities to be embedded throughout the core activities of teaching, learning and research.

Civic Impact Framework

The Civic University Network team has developed a Civic Impact Framework which aims to enable universities to engage in conversations with colleagues and partners about what a truly civic university might look like and what the journey might involve.

Institutional strategy and leadership is one of the seven domains, and key questions are:

  • How will top-level governance and strategies at our institution reflect our civic commitment to ensure we make the difference we want?
  • Which partners are we working with and to what ends, and what are their priorities?
  • What would it look like if our civic priorities were embedded throughout our core activities of teaching, learning and research?
