Community Engagement is about extending the impact of our teaching and research through partnership-building and dialogue with the wider community locally, nationally and internationally.
From 2008 to 2012 UEA hosted CUE East, a national Beacon for Public Engagement which built upon good practice at UEA and the Norwich Research Park, helping staff and students to connect with communities. In July 2012 we established a permanent Community University Engagement Office, supporting a dedicated Engagement Executive and refreshed Corporate Plan.
UEA has a small dedicated Community University Engagement team who are on hand to advise staff and students about different aspects of their engagement activity including ideas, planning, evaluation and impact. Financial and practical assistance is also available via a Small Expenses Fund and the loan of equipment such as audio recorders. You can find more information and case studies on the Community University Engagement website.
