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 sat in the Quad and listened 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 approach would consistently be "values driven and action-focused".
He added: "This strategy isn't even about Middlesex and it isn't even for Middlesex, it simply is Middlesex.
"It is an expression of our fabulously diverse, our creative and our purposeful community and that's what makes so proud and excited about it, because it's a bringing together and a projection into the future.
"Rather than a dictation, a top down or a very narrow view of what the university could be."
The VC also described the more 4,000 contributions to the strategy from around 2,000 staff members as a "remarkable figure".
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.
