EduCativ Posted July 12, 2020 Share Posted July 12, 2020 For more than 50 years, Canterbury Christ Church University has been a big part of the Kent community, providing education, which makes a real and positive difference to people's lives. Our network of campuses and centers stretches across Kent and Medway, and are a vital part of the local communities. We want all students and staff to achieve their full potential, and that is why we have invested millions of pounds into creating high-quality facilities to make this possible. Renowned for its vibrant and friendly atmosphere, Canterbury combines an exciting contemporary buzz with years of tradition and history. This international destination has been a center of learning since St Augustine established his first Cathedral and Abbey around AD600. Now Canterbury, a World Heritage site, is home to three universities, a renowned Cathedral, as well as a host of shops, bars, and restaurants. Canterbury is a diverse and beautiful city – a World Heritage site, a center for the arts, and an excellent destination for shopping and socializing. Canterbury's location means that London and Europe are within easy reach, and a visit to the coast is just a short drive away. Every year it plays host to several festivals, and the bars, clubs, and restaurants are popular all year round. Places you can visit in Canterbury include: Canterbury Christ Church is organized into academic faculties, that contain schools and centers for teaching and research, and professional service departments that provide our central services. Our Strategic Framework sets out our aims and objectives for the next five years and will enable us to build on our strengths and deliver measurable outcomes and impact in the context of our mission and values. We want to do more than provide our students with a high-quality education. We want to work in partnership with our students to ensure they graduate with an understanding of the challenges facing society and our world and have the skills, commitment, and personal qualities needed to help address them. Our aspirations for the next five years are formed around four broad aims. We want to enhance the student experience, further develop our high-quality teaching, extend our research and knowledge exchange activity, and ensure that all our resources are used to support our goals effectively. We will continue to work with students as partners to provide a first-class university experience that includes stimulating teaching and opportunities for the workplace and voluntary experience and study abroad. We will further develop our high-quality support services and facilities to ensure they are provided on how and when our students need them. We will build on our existing mechanisms for receiving and acting upon student feedback to continue to deliver an excellent student experience. We believe in a curriculum that is informed by our research, contributes to society's needs, and enhances the student experience. Our courses' strength and breadth are notable, and we want to build on that success across the board while ensuring that our commitment to social and environmental sustainability is embedded throughout our teaching and research. Research conducted by our academics makes a real difference, especially in the fields of health care, education, social and applied sciences, business, humanities, and the arts. We must nurture and support this. During the coming five years, we will continue to develop our research and knowledge exchange partnerships to deliver high-quality outputs that influence government policy, develop professional practice, benefit society, and inform our teaching. We understand that how people want to work and learn is changing, and we also need to keep up with innovations in teaching and research and knowledge exchange. To do this, we need to use our resources effectively, ensuring our buildings and technology support the achievement of our strategic aims and our University community. Our people have a crucial role to play in the achievement of our strategic aims. We want to ensure that our University is an inspiring place to work. People can develop and realize their potential within a friendly and professional learning community, working in partnership with our students. The senior management team developed the Strategic Framework in consultation with staff from across the University, the Governing Body, students, and external stakeholders. We will regularly measure the University's performance against Key Performance Indicators. View full university Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
