The Engagement Integrated Programme is dedicated to supporting the external engagement of SETU. The integrated programme is identifying and developing the overall profile for societal/regional engagement that characterises and describes SETU and aligns with its regional role and global remit. The work of the four working groups in the integrated programme is focused on developing an approach to framing SETU as a regionally-engaged university and developing mechanisms for structured engagement with other providers and stakeholders across the region. The integrated programme is also developing an approach and strategy/policies on internationalisation in close liaison with the academic domain.

Key activities in the integrated programme include considering how SETU will reinforce and build regional capacity, social and cultural sustainability and regional innovation and skills. There is a strong overlap with other functional domains and integrated programmes in for example, developing approaches to identifying engagement activities that are embedded across research and teaching, and the development of common policies for industry and external engagement, intellectual property, social innovation and cultural industries as well as a strategy and policies for internationalisation.
