Our community promise

As Britain's first civic university, we were founded by and for the people of Manchester. For us, community work has never been charity - it's a fundamental part of the purpose of The University of Manchester.

Today social responsibility is one of our three core University goals. Our promise to improve the well-being of all our communities lies at the heart of everything we do.
