Message to all members of the University
From Dr David Prout, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Planning and Resources)
I am writing to invite you to contribute to the development of the University Strategic Plan 2018-23.
On 5 February 2018, Council approved the approach to refresh the University’s Strategic Plan, which will take place in two phases. An initial consultation during Hilary term 2018 provides members of the University with an opportunity to comment on the current Strategic Plan, including its structure and on the issues that might be identified as priorities for the next plan period (2018-2023).
A second consultation will take place during Trinity term, which will seek views on the initial draft of the new Strategic Plan. A final draft will be provided for Council’s approval at its concluding meeting of Trinity term, and Congregation will consider the plan during Michaelmas term 2018.
Submissions at both stages of the consultation are invited from all bodies within the collegiate University as well as from individuals.
Individual responses to the initial consultation should be made through the following web page https://www.ox.ac.uk/staff/consultations/strategic-plan-consultation up until the end of the 10th week Hilary term (23 March). An electronic version of the draft Strategic Plan will subsequently be posted on this site when the consultation reopens at the start of Trinity term.
An open meeting on the University's Draft Strategic Plan (2017/18 to 2022/23) will take place early in Trinity term; further details about the arrangements, and the second phase of the consultation will be published in a future issue of the Gazette.
We are keen to hear your views at this stage, so that we can ensure that the next Strategic Plan is informed by the concerns and insights of the wider University community.
With very best wishes
Dr David Prout
Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Planning and Resources)
