Explore the challenges of building bridges between place, higher education and research and innovation policy in this public lecture.
Professor John Goddard OBE, Vice Chair of the Civic University Commission, will discuss the Commission’s findings and its proposals for Civic University Agreements between universities and their local partners, a commitment that the University of Glasgow has adopted.
Professor Goddard is also an Emeritus Professor of Regional Development Studies and a former Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Newcastle. He will draw on his publications, The University and the City (an outside-in perspective) and The Civic University: the Policy and Leadership Challenges (an inside-out perspective).

The discussion will be set in the context of the implications of the growing marketization of higher education and what this means for the role of universities as 'anchor institutions' in meeting the needs of 'left-behind places'.

It will conclude with a summary of the findings of the Civic University Commission and its proposals for Civic University Agreements (featured below) between universities and their local partners now endorsed by the VCs of 52 UK universities, including Glasgow and Glasgow Caledonian.

Wolfson Medical SchoolTea and coffee will be available in the Atrium after the lecture.
