On this page we list a number of external reports, reviews, evaluation guidelines and public engagement strategies from across a variety of funders. We hope that you find these documents useful as a source of inspiration and information. We will update this page periodically as we become aware of new reports in the sector. [It is always useful to check if there is another more up to date version of the document, especially where documents are a few years old].
The Pathways to Culture Change is based on the work of the 10 Catalyst Seed Fund projects (CSFs) (which includes University of Birmingham). The report seeks to ensure that other HEIs can benefit from the insights of all 10 institutions involved in the CSF by sharing the journeys they have travelled, the learning they have done, and the tools they have generated.
The ten CSF projects were established in 2015 and have evidenced significant impact within their host universities. The Pathways to Culture Change report tells an encouraging story of what can be achieved relatively quickly with a limited budget. The report therefore provides useful insights for others wanting to develop their own project.
