Abstract

In December 2012 the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement launched a new project, to explore external perspectives on the potential futures for the engaged university in the UK. The project was launched in response to UUK's horizon scanning exercise, ‘Future Trends’. This exercise concluded: ‘UK higher education currently faces a number of possible futures. The most positive of these would see the increasing integration of institutional interest with the wider public good, successfully negotiating a world of ever-increasing complexity and diversity, placing universities at the heart of social and economic advancement’. The NCCPE's consultation project aims to identify constructive ways in which, through engaging constructively with society, universities can most effectively deliver on this positive future and integrate institutional interests with ‘public good’. We are now halfway through the process, and have gathered the views of a wide variety of organisations, including community partners, charities, and cultural institutions. This interactive session will introduce some of the findings - and ask the question - how can universities best respond?
