Middlesex University is delighted to launch its new strategy which outlines how it will shape a brighter, more inclusive and equitable world over the next ten years.

The innovative future plans were unveiled to community and business leaders at a special launch event on Thursday evening on the main Hendon campus in North London.

Around 100 people filled the spectacular Quad to listen as Professor Nic Beech, the Vice-Chancellor of Middlesex University, revealed the ambitious and inspiring proposals for the next decade.

Prof Beech spoke about how the key focus would be to "turn knowledge into action" and "the strategy is not for Middlesex University, or about Middlesex University, it is Middlesex University".

This event, which included an exhibition, was live streamed on the new Middlesex University 2031 Strategy website.

The new strategy will see MDX focus its research and external projects around three integrating themes: equity and improvements in health and wellbeing, sustainability of communities and the environment, inclusive socio economic development and enriching lives through culture.

In a foreword to the new strategy, Professor Beech, said: “I feel privileged to be leading our global university into the next decade as we begin our new chapter with a renewed sense of confidence, ambition and community.

“We are united by a shared purpose: creating knowledge and putting it into action.

“Our three strategic priorities are: to provide transformative education; to create knowledge that impacts on global challenges; and to develop an action-oriented, high-performing learning culture.

“As staff and students we aspire to be a diverse, inclusive and equitable community with a strong sense of belonging and mutual pride in our achievements.”

Prof Beech concluded: “During our strategy formation our community made more than 4,000 contributions to its development – just one measure of everyone’s passion and commitment to the change we can make in the world and the power of belonging to the Middlesex community.

“We are proud of our global Middlesex family and our role in supporting each other’s learning and shaping a better world.”
