The continued progress made by staff and students in 2017-18 to make a more socially responsible and sustainable university is demonstrated in our ninth annual report.

We’re thrilled to receive the ‘Sustainability Institution of the Year’ Green Gown Award 2018, reflecting the many achievements of staff and students over the last year. It means a great deal to us to have our efforts recognised, but we all need to do more to tackle climate change, social disadvantage and inequality - and show in practice why what is good for society is good for universities.
