Our Mission


Our mission

Maximising opportunity through generating knowledge, innovation and enterprise.


Our ambition

To be a progressive and influential sector leader, championing diversity, growth, and creating life changes for all while enhancing economic impact and accelerating ambition across the entire University community.


Our pillars

The Strategic Plan is built around three key pillars of activity:

  • Students First
  • Skills and Knowledge for Economic and Social Transformation
  • Significant Influence and Impact

For each pillar, there are three goals outlining the impact that we, as a University, will have made by the end of the Strategic Plan period in 2021. 

The goals determine the key performance indicators and metrics that we will use to measure our performance against the Strategic Plan.
