Goal 1: No Poverty
The first Sustainable Development Goal is to end poverty in all its forms everywhere.
What we're doing
The University has committed to paying the voluntary Living Wage since 2015.
In 2023, as part of a response to the cost-of-living increases, the University also put in place several supportive measures for staff and students, including free breakfasts, reduced car parking costs, and financial support sessions.
The School of Economics deliver a third-year UG Development Economics (EC3061) module where students identify characteristics that cause significant differences in the level of economic development and prosperity and suggest appropriate policies targeted at promoting economic development as part of their assessment.
