Strategy and Action Plan

People Strategy

Our Strategic Framework 2018-2030 sets out our long-term direction and aspirations for the University, our staff and our students. It informs the People Strategy, which describes how we will meet our ambitious goals through the people we employ and others who work with us, to help us deliver a world-class student experience.

We are proud of our staff and understand that the best student experience can only be delivered if the people we have working for us share our vision, our ambitions and our dedication to delivering excellence. We understand the importance of a high-quality staff experience to get the best out of people in a high-performance culture, where we strive to compete with the best in our sector.

Our People strategy has been developed following direct consultation and engagement with our staff and other stakeholders as well as views submitted in staff surveys and in the development of our Strategic Framework.


Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

The University has an Equality Strategy which sets out how we intend to meet our statutory duties under the Equality Act 2010. The strategy was produced in consultation with staff, students and stakeholders and was approved by the Executive team and Governing Council in 2017.


Action Plan

The Equality and Diversity Committee has, through consultation, produced a top-level action plan to support this strategy which will be adapted by all Colleges and Departments to implement appropriate actions in their area. The Equality and Diversity Committee will report on the progress of meeting the actions through its annual report each year.
