Strategic Partnership Agreement with De Montfort University signed
On Monday 11th April 2016, St Philip’s Centre signed a pioneering strategic partnership with De Montfort University Leicester. This alliance which was signed by Professor Dominic Shellard (Vice Chancellor of DMU) and The Very Revd David Monteith (Chair of Trustees – St Philip’s Centre) recognises the vision and values which both institutions share on matters of integration and community cohesion.
Riaz Ravat, Deputy Director of St Philip’s Centre and alumnus of DMU said, “This partnership came about as a result of increasing connections between both institutions on a number of different agendas. In a world of many challenges, this compact demonstrates that together we can pursue shared values which are rooted in inclusivity and respect. Both DMU and St Philip’s Centre are proud of their individual identities which collectively illustrate commitments to equality, diversity, inter faith and integration. Moving forward we look forward to mutual collaboration on areas such as teaching, training and development, volunteering and community engagement. This is a ground breaking initiative which we are all wholeheartedly supportive of for the long term”.
