Making a Difference (a poem to be read aloud)
23 Apr 2018
Watch our Chancellor’s powerful performance of his poem celebrating our social responsibility
When Lemn Sissay MBE became Chancellor of the University his promise was to ‘inspire and be inspired’.
At last year’s Making a Difference Awards, Lemn read a new poem inspired by our commitment to social responsibility. These annual awards recognise the impact staff, students, alumni and external partners have on the social well-being of our communities and wider society.
Lemn’s first reading of Making a Difference at the ceremony in Whitworth Hall was a fitting celebration of the outstanding achievements of those present; powerful words to inspire the University to continue to make a positive contribution to society through teaching, research and public engagement.
