Since beginning life in 1828 as the Institution for the Diffusion of Knowledge, the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has developed into one of the UK’s largest universities. We have a flourishing network of highly valued international partners across the globe but it is in the City of Preston where we have created our heart and honed our values over a period of nearly 200 years.
We are proud to be a part of the city’s heritage and now we want to take the next steps in our evolution as described in this Masterplan. By investing in the region of £200 million over the coming decade we plan to create a truly inspiring educational environment which blends world-class teaching and learning facilities with green and accessible spaces for the benefit of all.
We will deliver a centre of learning where people of all interests and backgrounds can feel at ease, comfortable in their physical surroundings and supported in their academic, social and business aspirations. We will create an environment which welcomes communities and businesses to work with us to help regenerate the area and encourage inward investment. We believe our investments will be transformational for both the University and Preston.
I am delighted that our vision for the future of the University is shared and supported by our partners Preston City Council (PCC) and Lancashire County Council (LCC). We will continue to work closely with both these key stakeholders to ensure the city and the region benefit from the tremendous cultural and economic benefits that our plan will deliver.
I hope the details in our Masterplan document help to paint a vivid picture of what we hope to achieve for the University and the city. We strive to be good neighbours, we care about the community in which we sit and our desire is to create something of which we can all be proud. Your feedback is very important to us so please give us your views. Together, we think we can create something very special for the University, for the City of Preston, and for the economy of the North West as we turn our exciting aspirations from blueprint into reality.
