LSE Director, Minouche Shafik, along with the School Management Committee (SMC) have announced plans to include student, staff and alumni input into the formation of the new LSE Strategy. The consultation plan will be launched on Friday 23rd March in the Sheikh Zayed Theatre between 1.15-2.15pm, as part of a Town Hall event on the New Strategy. At the same time an online survey will run from the 23rd March to the 6th July 2018, to give respondents the chance to contribute.
LSE’s New Strategy
The Strategy will be presented by the Director and the SMC at the end of 2018, and will detail the direction necessary for LSE to “remain a world leading centre of excellence in 2030”, according to information from LSE’s media office. Opening the consultation to the wider members of the school is a completely new approach to the process. “I welcome and encourage all students to get involved” stated LSE Director Minouche Shafik.
Online Consultation Survey
The online survey aims to gather student, staff and alumni input into the strategic plan for LSE by focusing on six main areas, including the schools “founding purpose, education, research and engagement on a global level” said a spokesperson from LSE’s Media Department. Respondents will have the flexibility to answer as many or as few of the available questions that they feel are relevant to them.
Online Survey Sample Questions*
- Where should LSE invest to give the best student experience?
- What outcomes do we want for future generations of LSE students?
- Should we refocus onto more experiential learning and learning by doing, or perhaps continuing to enhance the synergies between our research and education?
- How can the digital revolution transform LSE?
- What size should the School be in 2030?
Information regarding the survey will be circulated via lse.ac.uk email addresses after its launch at the Town Hall on Friday 23rd March. The Town Hall itself will provide the first opportunity for students, staff and alumni to be part of discussions focusing on the key challenges the school faces, and the future vision for LSE into 2030.
