We understand that an excellent education is nothing without proper support. Across all levels and subjects, every student here is nurtured, guided and inspired to reach their full potential.
As a University we thrive on ideas, support innovation, and value the importance of social responsibility. Students come to us for our knowledge and experience, to enhance their career and personal ambitions. Our external partners come to us to find the latest research-led thinking and to access the talent of our students.
Our Mission as the University for the Common Good is ambitious. By 2030 Glasgow Caledonian University aims to be recognised as a world-leading University for social innovation. The Sustainable Development Goals, a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity, provide the guiding framework for achieving this in our Strategy 2030.
