The RVC is committed to the three pillars of its mission:

  • To education
  • To the discovery and translation of new knowledge
  • To the delivery of the very best clinical care and opinion  

Above all, we seek to push back the frontiers of what is possible in veterinary medicine and its associ­ated sciences.

Our Strategic Plan, published in early 2022, outlines our path for the next four years.

This plan identifies activities to which we will commit, the objectives on which we will focus and the broad metrics by which we expect to be judged.

Our Environmental Sustainability Strategy outlines how we are developing robust plans to meet our Net Zero target before 2040. It highlights how the RVC are going to make a positive impact in key areas to meet the unprecedented global challenges posed by climate and wider issues of sustainability

Blended Learning Strategy

This strategy lays the foundations to support our strategy for Teaching, Learning and Assessment and the next version of College Strategic Plan in order for the College to continue to provide innovative teaching and learning for its community of students wherever they are studying. This strategy recognises that blended learning interconnects with many areas of the College and that no strategy can be implemented without an understanding of how these areas will be affected. Its implementation is aligned to the Professional Services Division (PSD) operational plan, our Access and Participation plan (APP), to strategies for the development of our Infrastructure (Digital and Physical), and to our IT strategy. All strategies at the College are underpinned by a commitment to sustainable wellbeing as a guiding principle.

Student Voice Strategy

To maintain a high-quality student experience, it is essential that all students have opportunities to reflect on and evaluate their experiences of study and the wider service offering. To facilitate this, we use a variety of mechanisms with a view to learning from and responding to their feedback individually, collectively and through their representatives.

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Strategy

Our Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Strategy is a core part of the RVC’s Strategic Plan.   Our core mission is to create a diverse, inclusive, caring and compassionate university, where every individual - regardless of their background, identity or experience, feels valued, respected and empowered. We are committed to fostering a culture of equity, dismantling barriers to access and success, and to promoting diverse perspectives that enrich all our activities.
