Foreword from Lesley McAra
The University of Edinburgh has always been closely intertwined with the City of Edinburgh and its local communities.
We have made great progress in the few years since our initial Community Engagement Strategy was approved in 2016, but we know we need to go further and redouble our efforts to ensure the University is integrated into the city and its communities.
The 32 commitments
We have worked with the community to come up with 32 commitments that we promise to deliver on over the next four years.
What we've done in year two
Progress we've made in the second year since publishing the Community Plan, from the period December 2021 - December 2022.
Whether you are a student, member of staff, community member or community organisation, there are ways for everyone to get involved.
Community case studies
Here are a selection of community case studies that the University is proud to be involved in.
Delivering on what we promise
The University is committed to carrying out the actions of this plan between 2020 and 2025 and, as a University plan, it will require the whole institution to live up to these commitments.
