Stakeholders invited for morning briefing with VC


Professor Shirley Congdon, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bradford, will share her vision and strategic priorities for the University at an event next week (14 October).

The purpose of this event will be to strengthen and broaden the University’s engagement with key stakeholders.  The strategic priorities will focus on enhancing the quality and impact of research and teaching, building upon the University’s outstanding reputation nationally and internationally.

The University has an excellent standing in the sector for widening participation and supporting a diverse student body to access graduate careers.  This success has recently culminated in the prestigious award of University of Year 2019 for social inclusion by the Times and the Sunday Times. 

The event takes place on Monday morning and will be compered by BBC Look North community reporter, Sabbiyah Pervez.

After an introduction by Shirley, the conversation will open up to the audience, with an opportunity for attendees to then pose questions to Shirley.

Professor Congdon Said: “We are committed to supporting and contributing to Bradford’s inclusive social and economic growth. To do this we need to work together with our key partners in the city to establish shared priorities and objectives.

“I am looking forward to meeting as many of our stakeholders as possible and working together to ensure the district continues to thrive.”

Professor Shirley Congdon took over as the new Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bradford on 1 August.
