Supporting Our Community

We also want to support community organisations undertaking their own research and bring research questions and community perspectives into the University to ensure our teaching and research is reflective of the issues for people in the communities we serve. A key part of the building which serves as part of our commitment as a Civic University and delivers on our research strategy’s priorities of collaboration, creativity and careers is the development of a community health research hub. The hub will enable us to extend the reach of our public engagement and share our research findings with the wider community of Glasgow and further afield to meet our core vision of improving health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities.
