Summary This volume explores the university-region engagement agenda at the campus level, rather than the whole of institution level, because this is where engagement is more noticeable and meaningful for the various actors and agencies involved. The research focuses on the human capital, social capital and employment and economic project priority outcomes of engagement, and decomposes the structural and operational determinants of engagement across a range of university and regional situations. The realisation of regional economic development priorities for employment, exports and investment growth through university campus engagement are examined at three levels of convergence between campus and regional community economic development priorities
