Share your views for the White Paper strategy consultation

September 18th, 2019

Following a wealth of feedback received over the summer, colleagues are invited to submit any final views on the University Strategy White Paper consultation before the deadline of 30 September 2019.

The input from the University community to this consultation will help us to refine and finalise the new University strategy by December 2019 and we ask for your support in encouraging colleagues to engage with this opportunity.

You can review the proposed content for inclusion in the University strategy. Please note that this is not a draft of the strategy itself and we are inviting responses to the substance of the proposed content rather than the precise language. To illustrate what the proposal could mean in practice, we have included some examples of projects and initiatives that have been suggested and which would be in line with the goals proposed.

After you have reviewed the proposed content document, please answer four key questions by completing the short online form by 30 September 2019. Hard copies can be obtained by emailing

The previous Green Paper consultation received in excess of 17,000 pieces of feedback that helped to shape the document you are now reviewing. We truly appreciate all the contributions that were made during this consultation and would like to thank everyone who engaged with this process.

As part of our commitment to transparency throughout the development of the new strategy, you can view all the responses received to the Green Paper consultation as follows:

We are grateful to you for playing a key role in helping to shape the future of our University.

The impending climate disaster is once again high-lighted in the latest United Nations report emphasising that without immediate change in all human activities global temperatures will increase by 3C if not more. So what action should we take, an immediate change in as many activities as we can or continue to consult and persist with many of those activities that have got us into the current perilous situation? The University of Nottingham has to be carbon neutral, or negative within 5 years and all staff need to cease as much unnecessary travel as possible, just to start things off. At present the Sustainability Committee is conspicuous by having such a low profile and not driving the agenda forward. When will this situation be rectified, if ever?
