At King’s, impact is not just a buzzword, but a commitment. It is a purposeful dedication to actively engage with and contribute to the world’s most urgent challenges. A legacy King's has upheld for nearly two centuries.

This commitment represents who we are and what we stand for as a university. To ensure tangible benefits for individuals, society and the planet through our research, education and service.

Impact permeates all facets of King's operations, from our teaching and community engagement to the decisions we make as an employer and the products we purchase.

On Tuesday 28 November at Science Gallery London, Vice-Chancellor & President, Professor Shitij Kapur, and Vice President (International, Engagement & Service), Professor 'Funmi Olonisakin, will share their ambitions and goals for impact at King’s, while also launching a new network focused on sharing best practice and inspiring new collaborations.

A network of changemakers

The world’s biggest challenges can’t be solved by individuals. They take a collective effort. From students to academics to operational staff, we all have a role to play in responding to pressing global challenges.

Formed of academic and professional staff, students, alumni and community groups, King’s Impact Changemakers brings together our collective resources, expertise and partners to accelerate progress at individual, community, civic, national and global levels.

A core recommendation of the Strategy 2026 impact consultation, the group will:

  • Cultivate new collaborations and foster innovative grassroots projects that respond to key global challenges
  • Offer tailored development opportunities through training and events
  • Provide a platform for sharing knowledge, best practices and resources

The launch event will also offer attendees the chance to shape and inform the future development of the network.

The event will take place from 11:00 – 13:00 on Tuesday 28 November at Science Gallery London, followed by a light lunch. Sign up to secure your place.
