De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) is undertaking a journey to transform itself into a leading modern university. Driven by our new strategy which sees us as ‘The Empowering University’, we have a mission to create opportunities for our students, staff and partners to fulfil their potential and help create a fairer society.
Located at the heart of one of the country's most diverse cities, that culture is represented on our campus. We are the only university in the UK to be named a United Nations Academic Impact Hub for a Sustainable Development Goal. Our creative and entrepreneurial spirit is reflected in the fact that we are ranked ninth in the UK for student start-up companies by the Higher Education Statistics Agency.
Over the last decade our campus has been developed into one of the greenest, contiguous city campus spaces. Our academic transformation has begun with the delivery of Education 2030, a bold programme that introduces block-mode learning to deliver the education needed in 2030 to our students now. We have five new research themes and are transforming the way our professional services work.
We are already seeing results with an ‘Outstanding Support for Students’ award from The Times Higher Education, top 15 ranking in the What Uni Student Choice Award, and fourth place in the People and Planet league table.
We are looking for people who share our passion for educational transformation, cultural diversity and sustainability to join us in leadership positions.
