About us

Civic University Agreement

Queen Mary University of London is proud to be part of east London and we want to continue to play an active role in society around us, contributing economically, socially, culturally and environmentally. We are a member of the Civic University Network and have committed to develop a Civic University Agreement as a way of outlining our commitment to the local area 

To ensure we are meeting the needs of east London, we are focussing on listening to and collaborating with our local communities to develop our Civic University Agreement. 

Community Listening 

Working with London Citizens, Queen Mary is seeking the views of residents, businesses and organisations from across east London to help determine the pressures you are facing, gather insights into how you think we could help to address those challenges, and find opportunities for working together. 
We are focusing our listening within the following boroughs: Tower Hamlets, Hackney, Newham, Waltham Forest, Redbridge, Barking and Dagenham and Havering, as well as the City of London, Westminster and Islington. 

You can get involved in one of two ways: 

Join our online focus groups

Join us for an online group session, led by London Citizens, where we will be exploring the challenges and opportunities together.

Participate in our online survey

Tell us your thoughts and ideas on the main challenges facing east London, how Queen Mary could help to address them, and opportunities for collaborations. This survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and is open until December 18.

Future Steps

Following the listening, we would like your involvement in the development of our Civic University Agreement. This second phase will take place in Spring 2021.
