Our People

Lancaster's success depends on the talented, creative and committed people who work hard to make this University so special and distinctive.

Our vision for the future is to be a sustainable and academically excellent institution recognised as one of the leading universities in the world.

Lancaster offers a wealth of acclaimed academic staff who guide and support the academic development of our students. We conduct research at the highest international level, creating new knowledge and sharing the benefits of this with our students, partners and users. Lancaster marries academic excellence with practical impact, valuing rigorous research and high standards and also working with industry, business and companies to ensure the relevance of our research and teaching.

We are also grateful for the immensely valuable contributions made to Lancaster by our alumni who maintain their loyalty to Lancaster beyond their years of study. Networks operate worldwide and alumni enrich the experience of current students by generously giving their time, expertise and advice.
