Each session will be recorded and posted on the staff portal, so if you cannot attend, please check back for updates.

Surgery sessions

If you have an idea that you would like to put forward to the Vice-Chancellor, please book a place at one of our upcoming VC surgery sessions.

Colleagues are invited to share practical ideas on how life at the University could be enhanced. Ideally, suggestions should be linked to one of the four strategic principles of our new University Strategy - Community, Excellence, Sustainability and an Engaged University.    

Sessions have been scheduled as follows:

  • Tuesday 19 January, 10:00-11:30
  • Friday 12 February, 09:00-10:30
  • Thursday 11 March, 11:00-12:30

Each meeting will last 15 minutes and will take place via Microsoft Teams in the first instance.

Places must be booked in advance - please use this form to register your place. Discussions would ideally take place on a one-to-one basis, but small groups are also welcome.
