The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences works with many people and groups.  We are keen to expand and develop our work with regional businesses (especially small and medium sized enterprises), social enterprises (including non-governmental organisations, charities and other public-interest groups), and local government.

The faculty has a wide range of experts and researchers: this may be bewildering at first and because we know that you do not have time to waste we have a single contact for initial enquiries.  If you are interested in thinking about how we can work with you, contact Christopher May, the Associate Dean for Enterprise.
