The University of Birmingham is pleased to have contributed to a new report from the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE). The Pathways to Culture Change report focuses on learning from the 10 Catalyst Seed Fund projects (CSFs), including UoB. The report seeks to ensure that other HEIs can benefit from the insights of all institutions involved 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 CSF Pathways report provides useful insights for others wanting to develop their own project.
