Strategy 2025


Sussex 2025 sets out our strategic framework for the next five years. It reimagines the pioneering spirit of Sussex but does so for new times, building on our successes while reinventing ourselves for the future. This is crucial to support the long-term sustainability of the University.

Phase One of Sussex 2025 began in July 2018 and is the start of the journey of how we are going to achieve our ambitions, via our four underpinning key strategies which are our key areas of focus:

Work is well underway and we are already starting to see exciting new developments in these areas and the results starting to take shape.

In February 2020 the Vice Chancellor wrote to all staff to update them on progress to that point.

In March, the Covid-19 pandemic, meant that some of planned work on Sussex 2025 had to be put on hold while the Univeristy responded to students and staff's urgent needs, some continued as planned and in some cases work was fast-tracked.

The Vice Chancellor wrote to all staff in August 2020, to let them know what further progress has been made and how we have supported students and staff through these challenging times.
