This month UCL launches a consultation with our community – staff, students, alumni, key partners - to develop a strategic plan for the next five years.
The UCL Strategic Plan 2022-27 will set out our whole-university goals, focusing effort and investment on a small number of shared priorities that will be agreed through this consultation process.
The consultation will happen in phases over the next two terms, built around the publication of a series of discussion papers about where we’ve got to, where we want to be in five years and how we get there. We want to achieve the broadest and deepest possible engagement with staff and students, through town halls, workshops, focus groups and open calls for feedback on the published papers. We’ll then pull together the outcomes of discussions in those phases into a draft strategic plan, on which we’ll consult again before it is confirmed.

Initial opportunities to get involved

Monday 25 October: Consultation website goes live (ucl.ac.uk/strategic-plan-2022-27)

We publish the first two papers: Our vision, mission and values; and UCL Now. They are designed to prompt discussion of our strengths, areas for improvement and development, and about the kind of institution that we would like to be. The Sharepoint site will also have details of how you can share your ideas and a timeline for the consultation.

Monday 1 November: Town Hall, Christopher Ingold Auditorium.

Professor Dame Hazel Genn, Vice Provost (External Engagement) chairs a question-and-answer session with President & Provost Dr Michael Spence and Pro Provost (Academic Planning) Professor Geraint Rees. All staff and students welcome. You can join in person or via Zoom.
