Thank you to everyone who attended our series of future-casting University Strategy consultation events.

Each of the events, at each of our thriving campuses, was well attended by both staff and students. Across the sessions we had more than 550 wishes left on the wishing trees.

Thank you again to everyone who was generous enough to share their exciting and innovative ideas for the future of our University.

We took some great photos from each of our events. Take a look:

Unable to attend the events in person?

Fear not! We want to capture your ideas for the future too, so we are launching our online consultation hub on Moodle.

Simply log on using your usual Essex ID and password and take part in our online journey. From our fierce past, to our inclusive present right through to our innovative future, the site will guide you through our process for developing the University Strategy and show how you can submit your thoughts, ideas, comments and suggestions for the University’s work between 2019 and 2025.

Log on to Moodle now to get started.
