Universities for Nottingham: tell us your local impact story
We're working with NTU to undertake a joint civic and regional economic, social and cultural impact evaluation  and we need your help. Stories and case studies bring statistics to life — and in the current political climate this has never been more important. With this in mind, we're looking for recent examples of University projects that have positively impacted our communities and supported our partners. If you have a local impact story we can shout about, please get in touch and let us know.
Help us celebrate International Women's Day 2019
For International Women's Day this year we have a combination of cross-University events, specialist events led by faculties, and an online celebration of international women. We hope you'll join us at these events in recognition of the outstanding contribution that women staff and students make to our University.
