Corporate Social Responsiblity

At Manchester, we have a solid commitment to social responsibility across all our lives and aim to make a positive difference in society.

Social responsibility at The University of Manchester

We were the first British university to set social responsibility as a core goal and the Number One UK university for Social Impact* (Times Higher Education Impact Rankings).

From our access programmes and scholarships to our research tackling the world’s biggest questions, we make a difference locally, nationally, and globally.

We are now establishing our University as the sector’s leader for social impact by engaging our communities in our work, enabling all our people to help bring about a better world and embedding responsible processes and environmental sustainability in all our key activities.

Our ambitions

We will:

  • be a university where every person is able to make a difference;
  • be recognised globally for our distinctive work and reputation across our full range of activities;
  • address social and environmental challenges through our research, teaching and learning, public engagement, and campus operations.

We want to establish ourselves as the sector’s leader for social impact.
