Bill Rammell, vice chancellor, said: “We are proud to be a modern university and to support the Think Modern campaign.
“At Bedfordshire we are focused on meeting the challenges of the modern world. Our research and knowledge exchange addresses the challenges faced by business, public services and communities at home and globally such as cyber harassment, while our academics are delivering the research insight that addresses significant social challenges, such as the ageing population.
“In addition we are busy training the next generation of social workers, nurses and teachers and are supporting business and public services to innovate.”
