Strategy 2030

I am delighted to share our strategy for the next decade. On the following pages we have outlined our plans for the future, and you will see that our direction is led by a distinctive, honest and realistic set of guiding principles and goals.

Our vision to deliver excellence in 2030 is rooted in our values, with a focus on four key areas: people, research, teaching and learning, and social and civic responsibility.

In learning about our bold strategy for the future, I hope you will be inspired to join our efforts and help us to bring these plans to fruition.

We have more than 400 years of excellence behind us. Working together, we can make the next 400 years even better.

To make the greatest impact we will focus on four key areas, each shaped by our values.
