NTU and the community

Our mission is to make meaningful contributions to the community by sharing knowledge, creating partnerships and developing opportunities, locally, nationally and internationally.

We work hand in hand with community groups, schools and charities, in a shared effort to deliver meaningful change. Since our infancy in 1843, we have continued to play a significant role in shaping Nottingham’s physical development and cultural growth.

Today, NTU is one of the city’s largest employers, and every year our students make an invaluable contribution to society and the economy through thousands of hours of volunteering, placements and part-time work.

As a social and academic landmark in the city, we encourage our staff and students to take pride in where they live, protect their neighbours, and recognise their responsibilities as the leaders of tomorrow.

We have invested over half a billion pounds in our facilities, equipment, and learning resources, providing thousands of local people with access to work, training and continuing professional development opportunities. These opportunities are helping to transform Nottingham by creating new ways for people to develop, upskill and grow.
