Social responsibility describes the way we make a difference to the social and economic wellbeing of our communities through our teaching, research and public events and activities.
Social responsibility is one of the University's three core strategic goals sitting equally alongside our commitments to world-class research and outstanding learning and student experience.
The Faculty makes a significant contribution to the University's social responsibility priorities, including the training and support of scientific and health professionals, as well as major research contributions related to health.
