Social Renewal

Huge changes in the nature of employment are highlighting concerns about how individuals and communities can thrive amid rapid social and cultural change.

As a civic university Newcastle is increasingly engaged with looking for solutions to society's challenges to bring its international research expertise to bear on issues such as stimulating entrepreneurship, encouraging social inclusion and raising aspiration levels among schoolchildren and their families.

The sense of academic freedom encouraged by the University is helping to attract specialists, researchers and students to join the cutting edge work now being carried across Newcastle University. This is driven by the vision, beliefs and commitment of the individuals concerned.

The theme of Social Renewal is being led by the Newcastle Institute for Social Renewal.
