"Every member believes the Union helps students like them have a positive and successful academic experience"
The University of Plymouth Students’ Union (UPSU) is an independent, democratically led charity that represents the needs of the students studying at the University of Plymouth.
We have been on a journey since November 2017, investing heavily in consultation with our students, staff , trustees and the University to develop this new three year Strategic Plan. We have worked in partnership with external research consultants, Redbrick, who have undertaken the research on our behalf and helped us to shape our new outcome-focused Strategy and the way we will assess our impact. We have identfied one key priority for change which, alongside our core activities, will help us to deliver the highest quality student experience for our diverse student body.
As part of this process, we have also refreshed our Values and developed a new Purpose statement, the overarching and meaningful reason why we exist and, as part of this strategy, we have outlined how we achieve our Purpose.
We will still need to be flexible and adaptable to the changing environment around us and we will continue to consult with our students, but we are con? dent that being driven by our purpose and values will help us to achieve the changes outlined in our new plan which will meet the needs of our students.
