Our Strategy

Thank you to everyone who attended the Shaping Our World staff briefing sessions during February.

I was delighted to have the opportunity to engage with over 1,000 of our academic, professional services and support colleagues and I enjoyed hearing about all the #McrMetProud work taking place across the University and the positive impact this is having on our students.  

During the briefing sessions, I reflected on some of our highlights from the last year and looked ahead to the plans for the future. I hope you found the briefings informative and that the sessions made you as ambitious as I am to realise the incredible potential of Manchester Metropolitan.

I also talked about the importance of the University’s achievements, contribution to research and how the University strategy shapes our world. 

This video ‘Our University Year’ has been created to highlight these key achievements and the future developments the University has planned. I hope you enjoy watching it:

Every colleague contributes towards the University’s success and I hope you are as proud of these achievements as I am and are excited about our future plans. 

I will keep you up to date on the progress that we are making throughout the year and I look forward to seeing you all in the near future. 


Professor Malcolm Press
