help complete community volunteer work, run free legal advice sessions, and lead on outreach projects in local schools.
The university today remains a part of the community, offering a sports therapy clinic, cinema, and edible garden. It helps social start-ups through its Enterprise Hub; and is home to the Lanchester Interactive Archive - a public space celebrating the man behind the Coventry-based Lanchester Motor Company.
All this history and more will be celebrated throughout the year as the university hosts a community open day, public lecture series, and alumni events.
The university will also dress the city using images from its past to celebrate its place as Coventry and proud since 1843.
