DMU has also been designated as a Global Hub for Sustainable Development Goal 16 - the first university to be chosen as such. Our new Strategic Plan, which sets out our mission, values and strategic aims over the next five years, has been crafted in line with the United Nations' 17 SDGs, or Global Goals.

We have invested £136 million into developing our vision of the 'campus of the future' and now that vision has become a reality.
