Universities: Engaging with Local Communities
Universities UK
This leaflet illustrates the many ways in which universities impact on the local area. Universities are a major contributor to the economy in their own right, both as employers and purchasers of goods. Their social and cultural influence is also felt through their provision of: (1) art galleries, museums and exhibitions; (2) cinemas and theatres; (3) employment for local economy; (4) free lectures and debates; (5) skilled graduates; and (6) sport opportunities and facilities. One of the core aims of UK higher education is to meet the needs of the wider community. The expansion of higher education has increased the facilities available to those communities.
