The Commission has been established to consider the future roles of UoW in Coventry, Warwickshire and the wider Midlands; and to create a long term vision and strategies for delivering those roles. A key part of this process is convening five events - focused on Coventry, Warwickshire, local neighbourhoods, the Midlands, and national considerations, respectively.

This hearing will provide an opportunity for people to present their perspectives on the major opportunities and challenges facing their local communities; and discuss the potential roles and contributions the University of Warwick can make to community priorities.
