What we’re doing


The Civic Agreement is a commitment between De Montfort University, Loughborough University, University of Leicester, and the city and counties of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to work together for the benefit of local people and the prosperity of our places. The five themes of the Universities Partnership cover most of the SDGs:

  • Arts, heritage and culture
  • Education
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Economy
  • Health, wellbeing and sport


Recognising the crucial role that collaborations play in tackling the climate and ecological crisis, our academic staff, as well as our students and alumni are involved in many local and national partnerships to share expertise, develop programmes of work, influence policy and pursue solutions-focussed research on local environmental and economic growth.

The University is home to 18 world-changing research centres each contributing to our reputation as a research-intensive institution that delivers both research excellence and impact.
