Making the difference
We aspire to make the difference to our cities and regions through everything we do. We use our collective experience of providing high quality teaching and research with real world impact to shape higher education and research policy for the benefit of our students, businesses and civic partners. We will innovate together, learn from each other and support every member to transform lives and deliver growth.
1. Champion our strengths
We will create a strong brand that reflects our strengths. This will be reinforced by developing strategic alliances with appropriate UK organisations and similar university groupings overseas.
2. Shape policy
We will maintain excellent links with decision-makers in Government and Parliament. We will work together to establish robust, evidence-based positions and use these to influence the policy debate.
We will facilitate collective activity focusing on areas that showcase our strengths and support our policy arguments.
