Bold vision

The new strategy sets out a vision for the University, which is led by distinctive, honest and realistic guiding principles and goals.

Among the University’s priorities for delivery over the next decade are goals to strengthen interdisciplinary research, improve student satisfaction and foster a welcoming community.

The strategy also highlights an aim to ensure actions and activities deliver positive change locally, regionally and globally.

I am delighted to share our strategic plan for the next decade. By focusing on our values, on the civic purpose for which we were founded, and the changes we want to deliver, we can provide a rationale for the University’s future. We have more than 400 years of excellence behind us. Working together, we can make the next 400 years even better.
