Global Challenges

The University is committed to working across disciplines to help tackle global challenges in areas and our vision is to make Leeds a world-leading centre for interdisciplinary research into culture.

Through our Cultural Institute we want to ensure that the significance of culture in contributing urgent answers to complex and difficult questions facing the human race is appropriately understood and embraced across the University.

The Cultural Institute brings together academics and partners from across the cultural sector and beyond. Its core aims are to increase pioneering research collaborations with our partners, to widen cultural engagement and participation and to create more opportunities to extend the knowledge and build the skills of our students.
