What is Public Engagement?
Public Engagement is the term used in Universities to describe ways that Higher Education Institutions connect with the outside world.
The University of Huddersfield is currently developing a Public Engagement Strategy, which will have more information about what we mean by public engagement. For more information about our plans, please read our Knowledge Exchange Strategy or read the information on the Watermark page.
Public Engagement at Huddersfield
The central function that oversees this area at the University is the University Public Engagement Group. For more information about UPEG, or how Research, Innovation and Knowledge Exchange supports PE, please contact Dave Smith, Public Engagement Manager.
Plans are in development for more formal support for staff and students, which will be launched Autumn 2022.
