We are proud to make a difference to the lives of local people
Our staff and students make a significant contribution within our local communities through volunteering, public service and engagement with community groups and regional businesses.
The University has a huge impact on our region's economic, social, and cultural life through the delivery of excellent education and research.
Our activities generate £0.9bn for the south-east regional economy. We are committed to leading initiatives that ensure we deliver benefits to our region as a whole.
