ASA strategic vision

  • The strategic vision of Academic and Student Affairs (ASA) is to further the academic mission of the University through the efficient delivery of creative and sector-leading services to students and staff.  

    To achieve this we will:

    • ensure our own professional expertise through holding relevant qualifications where required, undertaking CPD, and engaging with our national and international communities of practice as relevant to our areas of expertise; connectedness
    • maintain an accessible approach to service delivery that enhances the student experience by supporting students directly through the services we offer and indirectly through enabling other staff throughout the University to do their job; confidence
    • build and nurture strong partnerships with staff in Faculties and Directorates, develop and grow robust channels of communication with all groups that have a stake in the Directorate’s work including as examples staff within ASA, enquirers, applicants, students, and alumni, employers and statutory and professional bodies; generosity of spirit
    • adapt and develop our approach to the delivery of the services for which we are responsible and the stewardship of the processes we manage while also ensuring the University remains compliant with all external and internal requirements and obligations; enterprising creativity.
