Our Vision for Sheffield

We're developing a new vision for the University. Give your feedback and help make it a reality.

Over the next few months, we're holding a University-wide conversation to collectively agree the direction we want to take as a university. We want to have a rich, creative and innovative discussion involving as many colleagues as possible.

From these conversations we will develop a new vision and strategy for the University, which will inspire us to achieve our priorities together.

Discussions will be based on a Vision Green Paper written by our President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Koen Lamberts, with support from colleagues on the University Executive Board (UEB) and their teams. This proposed future direction incorporates what you shared with Koen during his department visits. It now needs your feedback and your ideas to make it a reality.

Here's how you can join the conversation:
