OXFORD Brookes University has revealed how it will help the country recover from Covid-19.

The university, one of 12 in the University Alliance, will be aiding in the economic, social and cultural recovery from the pandemic.

The alliance has launched a campaign, Powering the UK’s Future, which highlights its role within the NHS and public services, and support for businesses.

Its 12 universities train nearly a quarter of the nation’s nurses and support almost 24,000 businesses with consultancy, facilities and research.

Alistair Fitt, vice chancellor of Oxford Brookes University, and deputy chair of University Alliance, said: “The new campaign is just a snapshot of the work we do every day.

“We’re proud to be a modern and innovative university in the heart of a traditional seat of learning in Oxford.

“With our community connections, business support, local partnerships and industry ready graduates, we continue to make a difference.”

The new campaign calls for higher education to be positioned and funded as a major asset for the nation’s recovery.
