Alongside our core delivery areas, we have identified three priorities through which we will increase our impact as a University:  

Influencing the health policy agenda in the UK and globally

We are a compact University, with a global reputation and network. We want to continue to use our research and expertise to drive global impact in the improvement of health.  

By 2030,
  • we will be leveraging our impact by increasing our presence in national and international health fora. 

  • we will be an important ‘go to’ voice in the UK for expertise in health research and education. 

  • we will increase our role in advocating for change to support the development of future healthcare professionals. 

  • we will have equipped our staff and academics to engage at this level.  

Being an integral part of our local community  

Civic engagement is central to our mission as a University. We want our local community to be proud of us, as their local University, and we want to have an impact on the lives of people who live and work in London.  

By 2030, 
  • we will provide positive economic, employment and study opportunities for our local area and be recognised as a trusted source of knowledge. 

  • we will be known for the impact of our research and the difference our community make to the lives of others. 

  • we will be a valued partner for local organisations, with strong connections to businesses and schools in London. 

  • we will be visible and accessible to people living and working across London, working together to drive societal change.  

Becoming an environmentally sustainable University  

The climate crisis we are facing has wide-reaching implications for health for everyone. With our specialist focus, we should lead the agenda on health and climate. We will work in collaboration with St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, with whom we share our site, to achieve our ambitions.  

By 2030,
  • we will have made substantial progress towards the decarbonisation of our estate.  

  • we will be on target to reduce scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions.  

  • we will have embedded sustainable practice across our curricula.
