Social Impact Declaration
  • Our University’s past is rooted in the great Industrial Revolution of the 19th Century which changed the world. In 1850, the Pendleton Mechanics Institute was founded providing applied learning for working people. Today, the University of Salford is home to more than 18,000 students, many of whom are the first in their families to benefit from higher education.

    The University provides a welcoming infrastructure for students from all backgrounds to succeed. We are recognised for our support of students from a care background, for example. As the first university in the UK to hold the Social Enterprise Gold Mark, we are proud of what we have achieved and work towards improving, that exemplifies our role as a social enterprise and as a university that supports the sector.

    Our Centre for Social Business, inspired by one of the world’s foremost thought leaders in the field, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus, carries out research, teaching and consultancy in the broad area of social enterprise. The Centre has created the UK’s first MSc programme in Social Business and Sustainable Marketing. We support and mentor students to establish new social enterprises. Our campus is home to a growing number of social enterprises.

    In 2017 the University will celebrate its Golden Jubilee – 50 years since the receipt of its Royal Charter, which turned the then Royal Technical College into the University of Salford. The University will be re-enforcing its community links and social engagement as part of this milestone.

    Our mission – transforming lives, stimulating discovery, realising potential – our commitment to social enterprise is a core element of that mission.
