Mission and Strategic Plan

Our Mission and Strategic Plan


Who Are We?

We are an educational charity, founded in 1861, committed to supporting students to transform their lives through active participation. Everything we do is driven by students, from leading campaigns which push social attitudes to volunteering in the local community, to helping students have a great social life. We believe in a world where every student is able to shape their own experiences and the world around them to set them up for a great future.

We are an ambitious organisation, working tirelessly every day to improve the lives of current and future students.


Strategic Plan 2016 - 2020

In our new Strategic Plan published earlier this year we made five promises to our students, and all our staff teams are working towards fulfilling these promises over the next four years and beyond. Find out more about our new Strategic Plan HERE
