University Strategy: Communities

3.2 Enabling communities for transformational education and research

3.2.1 Our campuses provide the physical and digital, social and natural environments for our community of staff and students to connect, collaborate, test and exchange the knowledge and ideas that drive transformational research and education. 

3.2.2 As we grow our community of staff and students, we will nurture, develop and grow our campus communities. Investment to grow our academic staff will aim to reduce student-staff ratios, and investment in our campuses will ensure that we provide a transformational environment for education and research, equipped with physical and digital infrastructure, facilities, workspaces, learning spaces, shared spaces and environments aligned to our ambitions and priorities. 

3.2.3 Our campus environments will nurture our sense of community and belonging, providing safe and effective social environments, where positive relationships promote well-being for all. Economies of scale in the delivery of our work will enable us to offer an outstanding experience to our students and staff.
