The University of Manchester has applied for a Public Engagement Watermark.

Acting in a similar way to a chartermark – the watermark is an award granted to institutions for strategic support for public engagement, and a commitment to improve the support offered by the institution. Just as a watermark runs through the fabric of a document, the watermark indicates that engagement runs through the fabric of the institution.

We would be grateful if you would complete the following survey to share how well you think the University of Manchester supports public engagement. The survey will take around 15 minutes to complete (or longer if you choose to provide more detailed feedback). The results of this survey will be synthesised and considered alongside the other sources of evidence. This will inform the level of award granted to your institution, as well as providing useful intelligence to improve your institution's support for public engagement.
