Staff invited to shape the next University Strategy

October 1st, 2018

As outlined in the recent Vice-Chancellor’s blog invitations will be issued to all staff from this week to contribute their thoughts to the development of the next University strategy.

Staff will be able to join a series of workshops in faculties and professional services departments at our campuses in the UK, China and Malaysia to gather views and perspectives to inform a ‘Green Paper’ which would set out the foundations of our future strategy.

Each session will be fully interactive, stimulating group discussions and debate to explore perspectives on the possible futures for the University and our community’s role in delivering them.

Invitations will be issued to faculty staff via Faculty Pro Vice-Chancellors and to professional services and operations staff via the Registrar and Chief Finance Officer. Places may be limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment. The workshop dates can be found below – just click the links to register for your place.

In my opinion, the University should aim at working more on research projects with charities and place equal value on these collaborations on those with business. In addition to bringing in funds, these types of collaborations are likely to lead to direct societal benefits and enhance the standing of the University. The third sector is increasingly influential in society and it is likely to bring us allies in many places. As most staff and students are involved in charitable work in some way, if only as a donor, these collaborations also are good for morale. A little investment in this area could go a long way.

As one of the biggest medical schools in the country we have a huge impact on local healthcare services and I’d like to see that , more clearly, forming part of the strategy.
The Medical School was introduced to Nottingham as an approach to tackle deprivation and health inequality. My understanding is that some of those indicators are stubbornly still suboptimal. Dr Christine Johnson, FRCGP
