University Strategy approved

The University’s new strategy, Creating Better Futures. Together, has been formally approved by University Council at its meeting on 31st March.

Work is now underway to publish more information about the Strategy on our website and other materials after the Easter break. 

The new Strategy is an ambitious plan that outlines the University’s goals for the next phase of its development. It will be the framework that shapes and guides the activity of all the Schools and Professional Services over the next ten years.

The feedback we received from staff, students, alumni and other key partners through the briefing sessions we held was instrumental in shaping the plans that we presented to Council. Thank you to all those who gave us their thoughts and comments.

Over the next 12 months a set of core plans will be developed that will guide the University’s operations in the following areas:

  • Research and Innovation
  • Education and Student Experience
  • Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
  • International Engagement and Impact
  • Sporting Excellence and Opportunities
  • Partnerships

The core plans will be supported by a series of ‘enabling’ projects which will explore the cultural, procedural and technology changes we need to engage with to make sure the University is well placed to progress our strategic aims. This is an exciting time and we look forward to working Together with you to deliver this strategy over the next ten years.
