Creating opportunities, making a difference
Universities are not just places of education. We’re innovators, employers, trainers. We help people across the globe to make social, cultural and economic change.
In a sector constantly seeking to create a better world, The University of Manchester remains unique: we’re the only UK university to give social responsibility the same strategic priority as our more traditional commitments to world-class research and an outstanding learning and student experience.
We want to make a positive difference to the future by taking socially responsible decisions that have a real impact on the world around us.
