Our work with the local community

With over 160 years of experience working with the city and our commitment to social justice we’re proud to be making a difference. Our Civic Charter was launched in Autumn 2019 to help the University in further strengthening its role in the community. In 2021, we became a signatory to the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement’s (NCCPE) Manifesto; in December 2022, we were delighted to receive the NCCPE Silver Engage Watermark, recognising our outstanding commitment to supporting public engagement.

In addition to our NCCPE commitments, we have also signed the Knowledge Exchange Concordat, pledged to become a University of Sanctuary, and created a Civic Agreement with the city. Public engagement is in our DNA and happening throughout at Solent.

As Southampton has developed, so has Solent, opening the door for people to go on and build successful working lives. We champion the city’s strengths, alprazolam, recognise its challenges, and seize the opportunities to work collaboratively to build a fairer and sustainable future for all.

Our connections, resources and knowledge allow us to take action on the issues we feel can make a difference. Read more about our commitments:

There are many other ways in which Solent can help the local community from supporting local businesses with student placement and live briefs, and promoting volunteering opportunities.
