Our Strategy to 2031

We create knowledge and put it into action to develop fairer, healthier, more prosperous and sustainable societies.

Our vision

We transform outcomes for individuals, communities and organisations and to empower people to change their lives. Our learning community has practice at the heart of what we do across education, research and knowledge exchange, and engagement.

Our integrating themes

We work in partnership and bring people together to create solutions to complex problems:

  • Equity and improvements in health and wellbeing
  • Inclusive socio-economic development and enriching lives through culture
  • Sustainability of communities and the environment

Our strategic priorities

As a community, we are all clear about our areas of focus and our people are empowered to take decisions and shape their work around them. Alongside our three shared priorities, we have also identified seven areas of focus as pillars for strategic implementation to achieve our purpose by 2031:

  • Transforming learning
  • Creating impact on global challenges
  • Constructing a learning organisation and enquiring community

We are a global family that is caring, action-oriented, purposeful and inclusive. We collaborate to create knowledge and put it into action.

Everything we do and achieve comes back to our people and our culture, principles and shared purpose:

  • Creative, collaborative with an agile culture
  • Local and global communities of practice
  • Focusing through our Integrating themes

Our Community Principles guide how we work, learn and behave as a community in action. They are for everyone that makes up our global family: staff, students, alumni and partners.

  • Action-oriented
  • Radically creative
  • Radically simple
  • Leading in equality, diversity and inclusion
  • Collaborative
  • Acting with care and integrity
