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 looking 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 Antonopoulous

Current Campuses

Elaine Hunter

New Campus Opportunities

Andy McGoff

Future World Models/ Staff & Student Services

Carolann Begbie

Digital Strategy

Claire Taylor 

Work began last year with agency NOMAD embarking on large-scale consultancy exercise with staff from across the University. This will soon come to an end and their findings will be presented to the VISION board.

Meanwhile, architects have been conducting feasibility studies on our current estate to establish what is possible.

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. This has included the re-opening of the first floor café at Sighthill, for example.

Project VISION is all about the future direction of your university so we welcome input from everyone. Please get in touch through staffcommunications@napier.ac.uk
