Social Responsibility (SR) is one of the three Strategic Priorities (together with world-class research and outstanding learning and student experience) of the University of Manchester. SR focuses on the following five priority areas, in which staff and students in the School of Computer Science are actively involved.
We have been awarded a second Athena Swan Bronze award in 2018, and run a Staff Development Committee with the responsibility to review and monitor the School's processes with regards to fairness and transparency. We engage in various activities to increase diversity and widening participation in the school, both among staff and students, see our Women in CS site, Foundation Year and schools activities.
The School has an SR Committee, chaired by the SR Director Prof Uli Sattler, that plans and coordinates activities in these areas.
