New listserv for those involved in public policy engagement

17 Nov 2011

Sign up to 'policy@manchester' to keep up to date with developments and share information.

At the request of the President and Vice Chancellor a survey of staff and report was prepared over the summer about public policy activity across the University. Anyone who wants to read the Report can find it online at:

We are in the process of establishing a new network across the whole of the University for those who are involved in public policy engagement work of any kind. The survey we conducted during the summer revealed a large and diverse 'community' of colleagues who are engaged in public policy dialogues at local, regional, national and international levels. At least 350 academics across the University do at least some such engagement work.

We will be holding an initial meeting of representatives from all Schools, centres and institutes across the University, and the Students' Union, in the New Year with the intention of setting up a steering group and wider participation events in the future.

To join the listserv and keep in touch with these developments, as well as sharing any questions, events, and developments that might be useful, simply send an email to:
