Join the discussion: Staff and Senior Leaders Forums

Interim Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Hai-Sui Yu is pleased to invite colleagues to a series of new Forums.

Vice-Chancellor’s Staff Blog | Our priorities for 2023/24 and beyond. November 2023

Throughout the Spring term, Hai-Sui will be joined by members of our University leadership team for hour-long sessions hosted in every Faculty and professional services area.

The results of the Employee Engagement Survey showed that our staff community want the University’s senior leaders to be more visible. The Forums are part of our important work to respond to your feedback, and improve engagement between colleagues and leadership. 

Each Forum will be chaired by either the Executive Dean of the Faculty, the University Secretary or the Chief Operating Officer.  

Hai-Sui will provide a brief update on his key priorities, but the majority of the Forum will be open for colleagues to ask questions and provide feedback.  

Hai-Sui said: “Heading into 2024, I’m looking forward to meeting colleagues, listening to your experiences and discussing the opportunities we have to strengthen our University community. 

 "I and other senior leaders have already taken part in the first forum with LUBS colleagues, where we had a positive and constructive discussion on a wide range of topics.

"These events are part of our commitment to developing a meaningful dialogue between staff and leadership, so that my UEG colleagues and I can address the issues that matter most to you.” 

The Forums will take place in person, with the option to join online via Microsoft Teams. 

Questions can be submitted when registering up to two weeks before each event, or asked by online and in-person attendees on the day. We will endeavour to answer as many questions as possible during the session, or follow up afterwards. 

Colleagues are also warmly invited to meet members of the University’s leadership team for refreshments afterwards and continue the conversation. Details will be shared with all in-person attendees for each Forum. 

Members of every Faculty and Professional Services division will receive invitations to register for the Forum via email over the next few weeks. We hope you’ll be able to join us. 

Please note that to attend the session, colleagues must complete the registration form.
