Hughes Hall: A vision for 2030 and beyond
“Hughes Hall was founded in 1885 to change Cambridge, to change the lives of those who studied here and, through them, to bring about positive change in society through the transformative power of education. As we approach the College’s 150th birthday, we are updating that vision for 2030 and beyond, building on the unique and special College that we already have.”
“Our College is founded on clear values: inclusion, innovation and impact. These values are mutually reinforcing, and they run through everything we do. They are the basis of our offer to our students, researchers, staff and senior members. And to our strategic partners and benefactors.”
“Like our founders, we want to transform the College and, through it, the lives of the people who come to learn, to teach and to do research. And through them to change society for the better.”
“This promises to be a wonderful journey and we invite you to make it with us.”
Sir Laurie Bristow, President.
