Our city and region are vital to us. We firmly recognise the positive role that we can play by working together and with our partners for the benefit of our city and the wider region.
Our 60,000 students and 12,000 staff are part of the fabric of the city and region – from students volunteering in local communities, to our staff working with public and private sector partners – they bring benefit and prosperity to the area. We are committed to working together to accelerate the post-Covid recovery of our region: through tackling inequalities; addressing skills needs; improving health outcomes; working towards sustainability goals; contributing to our cultural offer; raising aspirations and helping companies to innovate, grow and create employment opportunities.
Working in partnership has meant we have been able to deliver successful projects such as RISE, the Sheffield Innovation Programme (SIP) and the Managing Directors’ Club. And we have a shared commitment to addressing health inequalities through the University of Sheffield’s Healthy Lifespan Institute and Sheffield Hallam’s Advanced
Wellbeing Research Centre (AWRC).
By working together, we know that we can add greater value through our collective expertise, aligning projects and programmes to the region’s needs. We are committed to working closely with our regional partners, drawing on our research, innovation and teaching to deliver positive change and enhance prosperity.
