The Principal Anton Muscatelli

We've been making history since 1451,
yet we're firmly focused on the future

Our University is one of the world’s great research-intensive universities. Over the last few years we have made great strides in our performance. Our financially sound position means that we have created the exciting opportunity to begin to invest in our estate. This will enable us to embed new technologies, transform the way we work and improve the interaction with each other, our students and our partners.

This strategic plan sets out our ambition to build on our current strong position and become even better. 

To be a world-class, world-changing university.

At the plan’s very heart is every one of you: our staff, our inspiring people.

The strategy is about giving you the support, development, infrastructure and environment you need to further the University’s ambition to grow our reputation as:

  • A place where the best students, regardless of background, are given an education that prepares them to go into the world and make change happen.
  • A place where research that positively impacts on the health, wealth and cultural wellbeing of the world is conducted. 
  • A place that engages with the city of Glasgow and the global community and ensures that they flourish.

We are inspiring people. 

Together we can inspire others. 

Together we can change the world.
