The University has launched its new and prestigious Public Voice Scholars scheme with the appointment of fifteen new Public Voice Scholars. This is the first such scheme in the UK
The aim of the new Public Voice Scholars (PVS) scheme is to provide thought and practice leadership on public and policy engagement and research impact. The scheme will elevate the value of public engagement within the university, and the Public Voice Scholars will become important expressions of national and international leadership in public and policy engagement. The scholars will speak and act on behalf of their research expertise, the wider disciplinary context, and the university itself. They will also be a crucial route for the voice of communities to shape university research.
Our Public Voice Scholars come from disciplines across the university and have experience in co-produced research, engagement and knowledge exchange that leads to improvements in the lives of the public.
