The Strategic Planning and Governance directorate supports decision-making in the University to help achieve its strategic objectives.  We are responsible for providing an effective governance environment, managing the institutional risk framework and providing effective processes for strategic and operational planning across the University. Central to all of these functions are the effective use of data and intelligence and the provision of expert advice about the external environment.

The directorate includes three teams – Corporate Governance, Strategic Planning, and Business Intelligence.

We work with a wide range of stakeholders and partners, including all Faculties and Professional Service areas as well as external organisations such as OfS and HESA.
