We are pleased to announce the return of Katrina Kelly from maternity leave to her role as Head of Community Engagement. Katrina has been a dedicated member of staff at the University for 12 years and has been leading our community engagement efforts for the past two years.

We work hard to establish ourselves as a vital part of Bath, and during her time in the role Katrina has been instrumental in forging strong relationships with our local community, building bridges between the University and its local stakeholders, and promoting meaningful engagement on local issues. She is passionate about connecting with people, and her enthusiasm for community engagement is infectious.

As we welcome Katrina back, we also want to acknowledge the contribution made over the past year by her maternity cover, Joshua Hale. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Joshua for his hard work and dedication during his tenure. His contribution has been invaluable, and we wish him all the best for his future endeavours.

Katrina will be reaching out to various stakeholders over the coming weeks and months to discuss our current projects and partnerships, as well as explore new opportunities for collaboration. If you represent a community group, organisation or business in the area and would like to meet with Katrina to discuss how we can work together, please get in touch with her.

To learn more about how the University contributes to the economic, social, environmental and cultural life of the region, and how residents, schools and local organisations can benefit, see our community webpages.
