Our Public Engagement Strategy

Public Engagement is deeply embedded into the philosophy of the University of Hertfordshire and essential to our vision to transform lives and power potential. Central to our vision is offering opportunity, embracing flexibility and building community.

Our Public Engagement Strategy compliments our Research Strategy and forthcoming Knowledge Exchange Strategy, setting out how we work with our communities locally, regionally and globally. We embrace and work with the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE) definition of public engagement.

“Public engagement describes the myriad of ways in which the activity and benefits of higher education and research can be shared with the public. Engagement is by definition a two-way process, involving interaction and listening, with the goal of generating mutual benefit.”
