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. 

The survey and focus group opporunities have now been completed and we are analysing the data to help us plan the next stage of forming the CUA.

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.
