University of Edinburgh Community Relations Strategy

I've received a request for some of us to help the University with their community relations strategy.

Dear John/Hugh - my name is Rob Tomlinson, Head of Media &
Communications at the University of Edinburgh. Your contact details were
passed on to me by Dawn Ingram of Liberton CC. I am currently involved
in finalising the University's community relations strategy. As part of
this we are conducting some market research in the form of
questionnaires and/or focus groups with a variety of individuals and
organisations across the city to try and establish a better view of how
our neighbours and partners see us. I was keen to maybe try and organise
a focus group of residents' representatives who live in the area close
to major university sites such as King's Buildings or in areas where
there is a substantial student population (we have done a similar one
with residents from the Soutshide area). Would you or your colleagues be
interested in sharing your views in this way. I would need around six to
eight people and the discussion normally lasts a couple of hours. Please
let me know if this idea would be of use to you and your organisations
and whether you could provide some participants. I look forward to
hearing from you

Many thanks,


Rob Tomlinson
