From the Provost's Introduction to the Plan: 'A new strategic plan is an opportunity to set a
course for the future, to put forward new ideas in
response to changing times and circumstances,
while affirming Trinity’s enduring values.
Change is vital. To paraphrase Edmund Burke,
a university ‘without the means of some change
is without the means of its preservation’.
This is why the strategic plan is so important:
it provides the means for coordinated change;
it establishes priorities and ensures that the
priorities are structured to achieve our vision.
Our vision is to be a university of greater
global consequence delivering a distinctive
educational opportunity for our students, and
making research discoveries and scholarly
advances which have a global impact. It is
a vision of a university building on Ireland’s
achievements in education and research to
advance all our futures.'
