Social responsibility

Social responsibility describes the way that our School is making a difference to the social and environmental wellbeing of communities on campus, in Manchester, and around the world.

Social responsibility is built into every aspect of life in the School, including our teaching, research, and public events and activities. It covers many different types of activity, including:

  • community engagement;
  • equality, diversity, and inclusion;
  • humanitarian activities;
  • sustainability.

We provide a selection of ongoing programmes with which both members of the School and members of the public can engage. For example:

  • anyone can contribute to our Community Mapping Uganda project, which involves contributing much-needed map data to remote areas of Uganda to support the delivery of medical aid;
  • Read with SEED allows our School staff members to go into local primary schools to hear the children read and to provide them with much-needed books and equipment.
