The Strategic Plan outlines the University of Aberdeen's priorities for the next five years. Underpinned by our mission and values, which have been nurtured over 500 years of scholarly and scientific investigation, and excellence in learning and teaching, the document supports our commitment to providing an outstanding educational experience and enriching people's lives through research, learning and sharing of knowledge.

It sets out our ambition of being one of the world's top seats of teaching, learning and research - a progressive university that makes a difference, fostering a culture of equality and diversity, encouraging innovation, and empowering staff and students to achieve their aspirations.
