Vision ▪ n. the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom

Project VISION is about delivering our future strategy and the future of the University over the next years and decades, ensuring it is supported by the necessary estates and infrastructure to meet the needs of our diverse University community. It is lo​oking at the future of teaching, the future of research, the future of technology, and how we plan for all of those. 

Our estates and infrastructure, including digital infrastructure, need to be flexible and fit for the future in terms of the changing size and shape of the University, and Project VISION aims to deliver that.

The project is led by Michael Greenhalgh, Director of Strategy & Planning and Secretary to Court, and features six workstreams:



Future of Learning and Teaching

Nazira Karodia

Future of Research and Knowledge Exchange

Nick Antonopoulos

Current Campuses

Elaine Hunter

New Campus Opportunities

Andy McGoff

Future World Models/ Staff & Student Services

Carolann Begbie

Campus Conversations

These were held across all three campuses in December 2023. In them, Andrea discussed the University's future shape and size, the importance of space utilisation and the future requirements of each School and service.

Space utilisations surveys

Space utilisation surveys are continuing across the University until March 2024.

Campus boards

Although Project VISION is a long-term project, where quick wins have been established during the consultation phase, these have been implemented quickly where possible. In addtion, our campus boards meet on a monthly basis. The boards have local decision-making authority and coordinate and agree implementation of planned actions. Importantly, they are also a place for s​haring issues, ideas and updates.
