Imperial Strategy Consultation

Thank you to everyone who took part in the first phase of consultation which focused on addressing fundamental questions about our academic mission, as set out in the consultation paper

Your feedback was reviewed by the University Management Board and has helped to identify areas that needed more focus, more prominence and more emphasis. We have addressed these key points:

  • 4 out 5 of respondents - 82% - agree or strongly agreed that the pillars encompassed the key directions they would like to see from Imperial in the next 10-20 years.
  • Pride that Imperial is a leading global university – and continued ambitions for reaching our full potential.
  • Respondents want Imperial to remain ‘curiosity driven’ and create space for ‘blue-sky research’.
  • For signature issues, respondents want us to maintain a leading position in our research and consider major global issues like climate change.
  • Sustainability should be explicitly referenced in the strategy.
  • Supporting our people, improving our infrastructure and investment in our systems are fundamental, as was creating a ‘culture of collaboration’ to help partnerships within Imperial and outside to grow.
  • Strong desire to bolster our reputation and get Imperial the recognition it deserves.


Your feedback also helped to identify areas that need more of your input and reflection and the second phase of consultation will focus on discussing our shared vision and ambition in more detail.  These discussions will take place between Monday 19 June and Friday 28 July.

Thank you for continuing to shape our ambition and vision for the future.
