The UPP Foundation conducts research into how the higher education sector can improve the public good. The civic role of a university is one often confused with the university’s relationship with the public sector, the “civilising” role of higher education, or the outreach work that universities do. It is also the focus of an independent inquiry currently underway by the UPP Foundation’s Civic University Commission on how universities can fulfil their civic role in the 21st century.
I was commissioned to design the UPP Foundation's Civic University Commission Progress Report in October 2018. You can read the whole report here.
