Making a difference
Social responsibility is central to all of our teaching, research and engagement activity.
All our work falls into five distinct priorities:
- engaging our communities;
- environmental sustainability;
- research with impact;
- responsible processes;
- socially-responsible graduates.
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 enables social scientists to engage with a non-academic audience.
It also increases awareness of how the social sciences contribute to the wellbeing and economy of UK society.
