The University of Sheffield's Widening Participation Research and Evaluation Unit (WPREU) was established in May 2012 in order to:

  • deliver institution-specific research projects about the impact of the University's WP activities;
  • monitor and evaluate the University's WP activities and develop and maintain an evaluation strategy;
  • coordinate the submission of external WP reporting requirements (e.g.HEFCE, OFFA) and liaise with relevant external agencies;
  • foster links between researchers and practitioners with an interest in Widening Participation and Fair Access both within and beyond the University.
