The Community and Regional Engagement Officer works within the University of Aberdeen’s Public Affairs, Stakeholder Engagement and Events team (PASE) , based within the Directorate of External Relations.

As one of the North East of Scotland’s key ‘Anchor Institutions’, the University of Aberdeen is committed to listening to and working with its stakeholder communities locally, regionally and globally, to build partnerships that deliver imaginative solutions to societal and industrial challenges. We support colleagues to work in partnership to harness and share institutional knowledge, resources, events and campus facilities to make a positive difference across the region.

How We Can Help

We can provide the University with strategic guidance and operational support on external engagement and act as the interface between the University and local communities and partner organisations. Working with colleagues across the university, we can signpost community and wider stakeholder enquiries to the right staff member, team or university community group and match university colleagues with key external partners.

We also produce the University’s bi-monthly external stakeholder newsletter 'Civic News', showcasing the breadth and depth of learning, teaching and research activities and achievements across the institution. Colleagues can subscribe here to Civic News or email to submit an article for a future edition.
