Making a difference

Social responsibility is central to all of our teaching, research and engagement activity.

All our work falls into five distinct priorities: research with impact, socially-responsible graduates, engaging our communities, responsible processes, and environmental sustainability

Our core aim is to make a positive difference to society at a local, national and international level. 

There are many programmes you can get involved in to help us make a difference. 

ESRC Festival of Social Sciences

This festival is designed to promote and increase awareness of social science and enable social scientists to engage with a non-academic audience and increase awareness of the contributions the social sciences make to the wellbeing and the economy of UK society.
