We help universities engage with the public

Self assess with the EDGE Tool


How well does your institution currently support public engagement? Where are you doing well, and are there areas which you could quickly and efficiently target to make a big difference? We've distilled the work of the beacons and other universities to create a self assessment tool to help you take stock and plan your own work. The tool has nine focal points which form a self-assessment matrix, to allow you to assess your institution's progress. We've called it the EDGE Tool as it describes 'Embryonic', 'Developing', 'Gripping' and 'Embedded' approaches to supporting engagement.

You can access the interactive EDGE Tool by clicking on the link on the left, or download a paper version at the bottom of this page.
