UEL Launches Corporate Plan at the House of Lords
Leading figures from business, finance, arts and culture, as well as the health and education sectors, gathered at the House of Lords for the launch of the University of East London’s Corporate Plan – a five-year vision for its future.
The evening reception, hosted by the University’s Chancellor, Lord Noon, took place in the Cholmondeley Room on Thursday 29 January 2015.
Guests heard how UEL aims to consolidate its position as London’s leading university for Civic Engagement.
The University will strengthen its involvement in one of the most diverse communities in the UK, an area which provides many of its undergraduates.
“In fulfilling our role as an ‘anchor institution’ for social mobility and social innovation, our new Corporate Plan looks forward to the next five years,” said UEL’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor John Joughin. “It will support and guide our commitment to securing even more success for our students.”
Other speakers at the reception included the Lord Patel of Bradford, Baroness Prashar, as well as Firoz Patel from Childreach International.
The Corporate Plan is being launched at an exciting time for east London. The capital’s centre of gravity is moving east, accompanied by multi-million pound investment projects.
Civic Engagement is at the heart of our Corporate Plan. Find out more information.
