CUE East and the University of East Anglia: a story of change
Three and a half years into our four year pilot project, it was time to start reflecting on our overall impact. Our original task, given to us by the Beacon Funders, was to create a culture in higher education where public engagement is “formalised, and embedded as a valued and recognised activity” for staff and students. Have we made any difference to the way that University of East Anglia (UEA) staff and students engage with local communities? Do people, inside and outside UEA, understand what we mean by community engagement? It's a term used in a wide variety of contexts. In our “Story of change” publication, you will find an account of how it’s gone so far.
