Join us live from Manchester Museum on Wednesday 12 May between 18:00 and 19:30 to celebrate our Making a Difference Awards 2021.

With a range of exciting entertainment in store, join our Chancellor Lemn Sissay and President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell live online for our University’s Making a Difference Awards for Social Responsibility.

After a tumultuous year, we’re fortunate to be celebrating the many ways our University community is making a difference. This year’s shortlist includes projects as far ranging as creating an eco-friendly clothing range, to protecting Kenyan communities against COVID-19. The event is an opportunity for us all to show our appreciation for the positive impact that our students, staff, alumni and external partners are having on society and the environment.

We’ll also hear from Nalin Thakkar our Vice-President for Social Responsibility, about how we achieved our ranking as the world’s number one university in the Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings.

You can register to join in the celebrations, or watch live on Youtube and Facebook.
