UCL 2034


Academic leadership grounded in intellectual excellence

Enduring intellectual excellence – derived from talented individuals’ curiosity about, and commitment to, their chosen subject areas – is the prerequisite of academic leadership. This, more than anything, underpins the contributions that a university makes to society.

At UCL, such leadership is manifested by our academics in many ways, including, but not limited to: contributions to the intellectual life of their discipline(s); developing novel lines of enquiry; taking responsibility for educational programmes; professing the knowledge of a field to the wider community; supporting and nurturing those learning or establishing themselves within the academic community; and being open to engagement with cross-disciplinary collaboration.
