Warwick's Core Purposes


We begin with our aspirations in our core purposes of:

Our Four Strategic Priorities


Our Research and Education will be underpinned by four key strategic priorities:

  1. Innovation
  2. Inclusion
  3. Regional Leadership
  4. International


Warwick in 2030

Our University will be larger in 2030 than now, both in our student population and our research. That growth will be sustainable and will never compromise on quality. Our growth will be particularly in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, but will also build on our other existing strengths across all our disciplines.

Grand Challenges

As a result of the new University Strategy “Excellence with Purpose” the Council and University Executive Board identified “Grand Challenges” for the University to address in the coming years. Some of these are addressed through work to develop strategies for our four Strategic Priorities; some are cross-cutting challenges; and others relate to specific academic departments.
