Public and Community Engagement

Engage with us

A very warm welcome to our inclusive space for engagement at Kent.

We have pledged to be a leading civic university by 2025, to serve the communities around us and to help them flourish in every possible way. That’s a mission and a vision that fills us with great excitement and pride. However, we can only do this by working fully in partnership with our staff, students, members of our local, national or global communities, partners and businesses.

We are always looking for new ideas and partnerships, so take a look at some of the current community initiatives and if there’s something you’d like to talk about, get in touch.  

By working and engaging together we can achieve so much.
