Strategic Plan

This is Our Time

As we embark on the next phase of developing our strategic plan, we take enormous pride in our 130 year heritage with the higher education sector. This heritage is one of high standards of teaching, learning and research that reflect the needs of our local regional, national and global communities, and this remains just as important and relevant for us today.

As we move towards 2030, we will continue to act as a positive force for change, using our expertise as educators to curate knowledge, create opportunities and change lives for the better – on a local, regional, national and global stage.

Read our full Strategy 2021-2030.

Our strategic priorities are focused on transformational shifts in our work across Learning and Teaching, and Research and Knowledge Exchange.

We will focus on four cross-cutting priorities: Student Success, Inclusivity and Culture, Impactful Research and Knowledge Exchange, and Connected and Sustainable Campuses.

These priorities come with a commitment to invest in our students, staff, physical infrastructure and technology as key enablers to deliver against the goals that we set for ourselves over the next few years. They will be underpinned by a strong financial foundation and a sustainable future that will help us to navigate challenges as they emerge.

This is our time to establish ourselves as leaders in the fields that matter most to us. We are ambitious and absolutely committed to the future success of the University of Greenwich and our students.
