Comments on the Civic University Commission Report

Yesterday, the long awaited Civic University Commission Report led by Lord Kerslake for the UPP Foundation was published. The report contains a welcome summary of findings the commission obtained during the past year when it gathered evidence across the UK seeking to better understand and revitalise universities’ ‘civic role’. As editor of a new journal also founded, in part, to understand the relationships between universities, civics and places, I wish to add some constructive, critical comments to support progress of this most important agenda.
