As a community, our University has begun this year in good shape and we have much to look forward to, building on all our progress and achievements from 2022.
Key to this is our continued focus on delivering against our Being Westminster strategy, which has guided us well and helps us deploy our energies positively together towards a successful future.
At the beginning of the year, I met with external stakeholders (including members of Government and Vice-Chancellors from other UK universities) to look at how we navigate 2023. We have the potential for so much positive change, both here at Westminster and around the world.
Meanwhile on campus, the level of activity I have seen this semester is heartening and impressive. More than one in three of our students are active in clubs and societies, which is such an important part of making friends and feeling part of the community.
Our links with businesses and with you – our partners – as mentors and as volunteers is proliferating, and is an essential part of preparing our students for the world of work and finding employment. Your role in enabling and supporting this is so important and so worthwhile. We are very grateful for all you contribute.
One of the greatest assets we share is our Westminster community, encompassing colleagues, students, alumni, partners and friends of the University. It makes our campuses great places to be together – working alongside each other to the best of our abilities, enjoying each other’s company and taking advantage of the myriad of opportunities and activities that take place across the University every day.
With this is mind, I would highly recommend you sign up to the many engaging and thought-provoking events we have coming up over summer. From our Black History Year events, research conferences, student shows and exhibitions, to the Westminster Conversations series, we would love for you to be part of these sessions and the interesting and important discussions they spark. Make sure to book your space via the University website.
