Catch-up video: Our Strategy events

Note: the video above is a short introduction, the full video can be accessed at the Our Strategy webpage

Over the last few weeks, Vice-Chancellor Professor Malcolm Press held five briefing events to mark the launch of the University’s new strategy.

Prior to the presentations, there were opportunities to submit questions which the Vice-Chancellor either addressed in his presentation or answered directly. Many of the responses can also be viewed on the Our Strategy webpage.

If you were not able to attend you may wish to watch a recording of the proceedings on the Our Strategy webpage.

During the events, the Vice-Chancellor touched on some of the successes that have come from our work across the University.

Everyone who attended received the first edition of the Wow booklet, containing stories for staff, by staff. If you have any extraordinary stories that you would like to put forward to be included in the next edition of the Wow booklet, please email

You will soon see evidence around campus and online of our newest campaign, #McrMetProud, which aims to reinforce the pride and confidence that we take in our work and its impact.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Malcolm Press said: “I was very pleased to have the opportunity to engage with more than 1,000 members of the University at events to mark the launch of our new strategy.  We spent much of 2016 working with colleagues to arrive at Our Strategy. The challenge for 2017 and beyond is to deliver on the vision and ambition that we share and to make a difference for the betterment of all.”
