Over the last year the Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Karen Cox, has been working with colleagues on how best to meet the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the University.

At its meeting on 5 October the University Council endorsed the direction of travel for an update for the 2015-2020 University Plan. The presentation given at the Vice-Chancellor's Open Forum on 10 October can be found on the Resources page.

Over the coming weeks the Vice-Chancellor and Executive Group will be working with colleagues across the University on taking the strategy forward, including responding to the challenges we face and building on the opportunities. New sub-strategies on Education and Student Experience; Research and Innovation; and Engagement and the Civic Mission are under development.
