Universities West Midlands is a regional membership organisation working to represent the interests of the 12 Higher Education Institutions within the West Midlands.

We represent a broad diverse body of institutions, and collectively we encompass a wide range of universities which vary in shape, size and focus, where the views and challenges are sometimes shared and sometimes differ. We value our diversity as a core strength that allows broad-ranging debate where new ideas and solutions can be shared in a context of openness and trust.

Our mission is to be a positive force for influence and economic, social and cultural well-being and public benefit. We strive to be recognised as the partner of choice for those seeking engagement with the universities of the West Midlands.

We value the collective approach that UWM can make to provide an educated population and skilled workforce, to deliver variety and choice of routes to educational achievement and to foster a pathway to HE through working with our Schools and Further Education partners.
