University launches new Strategic Framework, Sussex 2025

The University of Sussex today launched its new Strategic Framework, Sussex 2025.

The framework is a seven-year transformation - an expression of what we stand for and how we will continue to build on our success whilst reinventing ourselves for the future. It sets out our vision for the kind of university we want to be and shares the values that we hold dear.

From the very first days of the institution, Sussex was designed to be different - we have a distinguished tradition of disruptive and experimental interventions. Our new Strategic Framework is all about building on these foundations to realise a modern, progressive university for a new age.
 
It has been developed through a truly collaborative process, involving many of our staff, students, alumni and partners. You told us loud and clear that you want a better university, for a better world, and the decisions we are taking in Sussex 2025 take us in that direction and provides us with a shared purpose.
 
Importantly, the framework sets out our broad vision and ambitions. It is not a detailed roadmap for how we get there - this work comes next.
 
Flowing out of the framework will be the University-level strategies based on our four key pillars:

  • Learn to Transform;
  • Research with Impact;
  • Engage for Change; 
  • Build on Strengths.

To support these University strategies, there will be a series of enabling strategies covering all of our schools and divisions as well as other areas such as the Student Experience; Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI); and Smart Sussex, our new approach to digital innovation.

Colleagues from across the University are already doing lots of detailed work on these. These strategies will clearly lay out how we will bring about the university we describe in Sussex 2025. The first of these enabling strategies, on EDI, was launched today alongside the framework.
