Social inclusion

As one of the leading global higher education institutions for social responsibility and one of Greater Manchester’s largest spenders and employers, we’re well positioned to tackle the social inequalities, prejudices and barriers that continue to affect people’s lives and choices locally, nationally and globally.

We‘re engaging with, involving and inspiring, people on our campus, in communities and around the world to develop our understanding of social inclusion and how we can foster inclusive and effective solutions. These are delivered through four signature programmes: our School Governor Initiative, the Manchester Access Programme, employment and training initiative The Works and our Equity and Merit Scholarships.
