Since the 18th century, universities' civic missions have evolved beyond widening access to higher education to now include public engagement, economic renewal and community outreach.

Jeremy Read is the CEO of the University of Winnipeg Community Renewal Corporation and UWCRC 2.0 and Carenza Lewis is professor for the Public Understanding of Research and leads the PEARL (Public Engagement for All with Research at Lincoln) initiative at the University of Lincoln.
