Building our future together
How our strategy is structured
Our mission explains why we exist, our reason for being and what we do.
Our vision states where we want to be, and what we set out to achieve by 2030.
Our future success will depend upon our three pillars – the University’s core activities and areas of strength.
The pillars are in turn dependent on us making the best use of our resources, which we term our enablers.
Embedded within all our activities in the pillars are our cross-cutters – three key areas of focus.
In everything we do, we must remain true to our values. These encapsulate how we do things and are what make us the University of Bristol.
To make a positive impact locally, nationally, and globally by addressing society’s greatest challenges through our distinctive education, innovative research and the value we place on excellence, inclusivity and partnership.
By 2030, we will be firmly established among the world’s top 50 great research-intensive universities, and the top 10 in the UK.
