Community Engagement

We are committed to active engagement with our local communities. Our aim is to develop positive and mutually beneficial relationships with local community stakeholders. These include our neighbours, local residents and community groups; voluntary and charity organisations and local government in Cambridgeshire and Essex.

We aim to promote and support education, be good neighbours, exchange knowledge, experience and skills and open up our campuses and resources.
