In Year 3/4 of Vision 2028, we continued to be tested by the global pandemic and since then have taken decisive action to advance our education and research impact, while responding dynamically in constantly changing circumstances.
Our multi-layered Covid response system kept our community safe, our Dual Delivery framework engaged students to ever-higher levels, and our series of wellbeing initiatives provided intellectual, emotional and physical support during a historically difficult time. We also took the opportunity to explore new themes.
In Year 3 of Vision 2028 we moved forward with the following strategies:
- Becoming a leader in the local and global climate change conversation and a net-zero carbon institution
- Supporting the health and wellbeing of students, staff and the local community with care, compassion and commitment
- Harnessing the power of sport to transform lives individually, locally and nationally
- This year we also celebrated the launch of our multi-million pound Connected Campus improvement programme, designed to increase the accessibility of our campuses to our community and to enhance the education and industry interface
Now, as we continue to focus in Year 4 of Vision 2028, our careers-first vision has remained constant. We empower our learners, build Industry 5.0 career-readiness, and nurture an inclusive industry-facing environment that is central to the creation of a more diverse talent pipeline.
