Supporting the University's academic mission

ourcambridge is a staff-centric cultural change programme developed in response to staff feedback. A grassroots project, it is designed to support professional services staff to achieve their potential in support of the University’s academic mission.

The University's academic mission is "to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence". This can only be achieved with the support of our professional services staff. These are non-academic staff who cover a wide variety of roles and make a critical contribution to the work of the University. Through supporting the work of our academic staff, they ensure we are able to deliver the educational excellence and world-beating research the University is renowned for.



How ourcambridge is supporting change

ourcambridge is guided by on-going staff feedback and supports continuous improvement. The ultimate goal is to ensure our professional services staff feel valued, have high job satisfaction and opportunities for development. 

Through the ourcambridge programme, our focus is on improving the job satisfaction of professional services staff and reducing the impact of overly complicated processes by getting rid of red tape, thereby increasing effectiveness. This enables us to bring about positive cultural change and help create a sustainable environment where everyone can thrive.
