Q4 19/20

Report Date
August 2020

We are aware that a review of the Social Impact Pledge is being undertaken. If the scheme is changed, it's not clear how serious this would really be for the University. The Pledge is a useful way of focusing the University's strategic community engagement efforts, and it is mentioned as such in the updated draft Community Plan as such, but we don't know how visible the Pledge and how much recognition the University's commitments gain through it. 

In terms of progress against current pledges, the University is on track (allowing for the pandemic).

RAG Commentary
Although the Pledge scheme as a whole is under review, we don't think any change to it would necessarily be to the University's disadvantage. We also think this year's pledges are doing as well as they could be expected to be given the context of the pandemic. Given that, we still give this a green status.
