The University of Aberdeen is committed to becoming one of the top 100 world-leading universities, with a unique role developed over 500 years as ‘the global university of the north’.
We aim to be recognised locally, nationally and internationally as a broad-based university that delivers innovative and excellent teaching and research. We are committed to positive change, to celebrating culture, to embracing enterprise, and to pioneering new ideas and inventions.
The mission, objectives and targets outlined in our Strategic Plan are approved and monitored by the governance structure of the University Court, which has corporate and legal responsibilities, and the Senatus Academicus (Senate) which is responsible for the regulation and superintendence of teaching and the promotion of research. The General Council comprises all University graduates and certain academic staff and is empowered "to take into consideration all questions affecting the well-being and prosperity of the University, and to make representations from time to time on such questions to the University Court ".
