The 37-page strategy document is the result of months of consultation and drafting involving large numbers of University staff and students. The final draft was approved by University Court at the end of June.  ‌

The new document is called simply: Inspiring People - Changing The World. The document's front cover - an image of the University Tower - is made up of more than a thousand minute selfie photographs submitted by students and staff during the latter stages of the consultation. 

The new strategy puts people at the very heart of all the University does on the basis that it is inspiring people who drive success.

Senior Vice-Principal Neal Juster led the consultation and drafting process. Watch the interview with Internal Communications' Phil Taylor.

The new strategy sets out nine primary key performance indicators and a further thirteen secondary KPIs which will be used to assess the University of Glasgow's progress and performance as we move towards 2020.
