University strategy: staff feedback published

January 17th, 2019

Feedback from more than 300 staff attending November’s “21st Century University” staff workshops is published verbatim today (Thursday 17 January 2019) by Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Andy Long, as he sets out the next steps for the development of the Strategy in a new blog.

The staff feedback and blog can be read on the University Strategy webpages.

As a starting point for development of the next University strategy to succeed Global Strategy 2020, a series of events to discuss the “21st Century University” were attended by more than 300 staff across all job families, faculties and professional service departments in the UK, China and Malaysia. Staff also had the opportunity to contribute online if they were unable to attend.

Examining issues around teaching, research and campus life along with topics specific to each faculty and professional service department, feedback from the workshops was diverse and extensive with common themes emerging on commitment to research-led teaching, engagement with our broader communities and leveraging the benefits of our international presence.

In his blog Professor Long extends his thanks to all staff who have contributed to this exercise so far and looks forward to the next steps in developing a strategy in partnership with our University community.

Post the exciting investment in the David Ross Sports Village and the position UoN occupies in sport at a national level. There is an opportunity for Sport to have more of a central focus on which to develop the university position in areas such as:
– International and domestic recruitment of outstanding individuals
– Profile and reputation through national and international exposure
– Improved student sense of belonging and alumni connectivity through sport as a key experience for students
– Reduced staff absenteeism, turnover and motivation levels through sport having a more central input in the health and wellbeing strategy
Lots of opportunity to make the most of!
