UCL Strategic Plan 2022-27
31 October 2022 *FINAL PHASE*
UCL Draft Strategic Plan published
What the 5-year strategic plan is for
Our strategic plan will set out our whole-university priorities for the next five years, focusing effort and investment on a small number of shared priorities agreed through consultation with our community and stakeholders. It will maintain the trajectory established by UCL 2034 and our ambition to be London’s global university.
Why we are developing it now
UCL 2034 is an important statement of vision and aspiration for UCL as a globally leading university. Seven years in, our sector, our city and the broader external environment have changed dramatically. We have a new President and Provost and we are emerging from a global pandemic during a time of geopolitical and social change. With several institutional strategies at the end of their duration, it is time to review our progress in research, education and innovation and reset our goals for the next period of our development.
How the consultation will be run
The consultation is built around the publication of a series of discussion papers (below) about where we have got to, where we want to be in five years and how we get there. The conversation began in October 2021 and has been extended to October 2022, so that we can 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. The outcomes of discussions and feedback from our community will inform a draft strategic plan, on which we will consult (September-October 2022) before it is confirmed.
How to provide feedback
We welcome feedback from all.
