What next at Leeds?

Since the autumn, work has been underway to begin the development of our vision and strategy for the next decade. That work has included defining the internal and external context in which we operate, so that we can build robust plans and create headroom for future development.

Throughout June and July 2019, our senior leadership team (University Executive Group), met almost 900 colleagues in five live sessions across campus. They talked about the work we’ve done so far, where we are now, where we want to be and how you can get involved in the consultation stage this autumn.

A live recording from our fifth and final session and a copy of the presentation, with speaker notes, is now available to download.

Next steps

A consultation period with staff, students and key stakeholders will begin in the Autumn term. This will be informed by a document that pulls together the emerging thinking presented during the What next at Leeds? sessions.
