Working in partnership for our people and place

The Universities for Nottingham Civic Agreement brings together ten key organisations from across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, to work collectively in support of the residents and the communities that unite us.

The Vice-Chancellors, alongside local authority leaders, the Local Enterprise Partnership, Vision West Nottinghamshire College and leaders of the local healthcare trusts and Integrated Care Board have come together to sign the Universities for Nottingham Civic Agreement. We have a shared mission to improve levels of prosperity, opportunity, sustainability, health and wellbeing for the communities that unite us.
