St Mary’s want its students to be highly skilled, informed and civically engaged. Vision 2030 sets out how the University will do this, building on the successes of the past and setting St Mary’s direction for the coming years.
In 2015, St Mary’s outlined ambitious objectives for the next ten years. Thanks to the University’s committed staff, it has achieved many of those goals. St Mary’s has expanded its portfolio of courses, been granted the power to award research degrees, invested in new technology, grown our international student body, welcomed Mater Ecclesiae College alongside the University, and we recently achieved our highest ever position in a university league table to sit in the top half of the Sunday Times Good University Guide.
Vision 2030 reflects our optimism for the future of our institution. In 2025 we will celebrate our 175th anniversary. Our founders’ vision of education as an instrument for personal achievement and social equity is still very much alive and, I believe, more relevant than ever.
St Mary’s vision for the future comprises five pillars:
- Achieving Student Success
- Developing our people
- Extending our impact through growth
- Expanding our reach through partnerships
- Enhancing our sense of place
St Mary’s Vice-Chancellor Anthony McClaran said of the launch, “As we enter a new phase of the University’s growth, I believe it is time to revisit our ambitions and therefore, after consultation with our staff and students, we’ve refreshed our strategy to guide our actions for the next decade. Vision 2030 outlines our approach and forms the guiding structure for our supporting strategies, operating plans, and team and individual targets.
“The vision comes at a decisive point in our institution’s (and indeed the world’s) history; the COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge disruptive impact across the globe. However, despite the challenges, we’ve discovered new ways of working and teaching, and renewed our focus on living our values.
“Vision 2030 reflects our optimism for the future of our institution. In 2025 we will celebrate our 175th anniversary. Our founders’ vision of education as an instrument for personal achievement and social equity is still very much alive and, I believe, more relevant than ever.”
