Our Strategy 2017-20

Values

Asserting | Inspiring | Transforming

LEADERSHIP

We turn students into leaders, and we carve our own paths.

We will find talent, nurture it, and put it to work for our members. We will build a culture of responsibility, honesty and ownership, but not blame. Our leaders will have power, with accountability; authority, with transparency; we will all lead by example. That's how we will stay ahead of the challenges we face, take a leadership role in the most important debates, and tackle our biggest decisions with confidence and energy.

 

Building | Establishing | Creating

PARTNERSHIP

We have a lot of challenges ahead of us, and we will not tackle them alone.

We are stronger when we work together. Internally and externally, we will search for those with whom we have common ground and shared priorities, and we will find new ways to work together. We can do more, achieve more, and offer more, when we collaborate with others. We will be a dependable partner, sharing our successes, abilities and aspirations widely. We will assert our place as an essential partner to College, at the centre of the worldwide Imperial community.

 

Deepening | Firing up | Extending

DEMOCRACY

We won’t do things for you, we’ll do things with you.

We are run by our members, for our members. We are our members. We will build a powerful and meaningful student democracy, which will engage every single one of us. Our student leaders will speak with authority and insight, and they will tackle our most complex and difficult decisions. Through this democracy, we will empower every student to create their own Imperial experience, challenge them to grow to their full potential, and fire them up to change the world around them.

 

Prizing | Appreciating | Demanding

INCLUSIVITY

No matter who you are, we’re here for you.

There is only one Imperial community, and we will hear every voice within it. It doesn't matter what you study, where you are, where you're from, or where you're going - we will tear down any barrier that keeps you from our opportunities and our democracy. We believe there is no such thing as an average or typical Imperial student, and we recognise that our strength and our power comes from the diversity of our membership.
