Mission and strategy
Over the past ten years King’s has improved dramatically and has become one of the world’s leading Universities for both education and research.
Looking ahead at a world that depends on being better connected, King’s already has the advantage of having disciplines that connect across different cultures, subjects, institutions and geographies.
Not least of our advantages is our place at the centre of London, a truly international city with close connections to knowledge and influence that enrich university life in practical and inspiring ways.
In September 2014, the President and Principal launched King’s Futures, a range of strategic initiatives aimed at further building on our strengths.
King’s Futures includes growth in areas such as Business, Science and Technology, improving the student experience, refining our focus on research and innovation and reaching further across the globe to attract students and partners alike.
It complements a wide range of strategic initiatives that were already underway.
This focus on new strategic initiatives, combined with our underlying institutional goals, provides the backbone for a new institutional strategy for King’s.
This will be further refined into a new institutional vision and strategy over the next 12 months, defining King’s role in helping to understand and overcome some of the world’s great challenges.
We expect to publish this vision and strategy in early 2017 and will be working closely with staff, students and external stakeholders between now and then.
