ABOUT salford university

At the University of Salford, we have an exciting and ambitious vision, a new strategy and an overarching mission. This will enable us to provide the best possible experience for our students and to respond to the challenges we face in an ever-changing higher education landscape – both at home and overseas.

Underpinning our vision is the creation of four industry collaboration zones which will act as a focus for new relationships and partnerships partners in particular industry sectors. This is a move away from the traditional structures and models of learning and will provide new and exciting experience opportunities for our students as well as building more solid links with our strategic partners out in industry. We have a long and distinguished history of achievement here at Salford and much to be proud of. As our mission rightly says – we transform lives, stimulate discovery and realise potential.

A few words from john whitlow, CIO

The Digital IT directorate is transforming. We still provide core IT services to the university’s students, academics and professionals, and are currently exploring new technologies and striving to innovative, whilst also placing a strong focus around improving the customer experience. This forward-thinking approach has opened the door for many new opportunities, making us an enabling force within the University.

We have evolved into taking on a digital and project function. The expansion of our services is to support the delivery of the University’s strategic plan and priorities. Underpinning the university’s strategic plan is the Digital IT strategy, which encompasses some new and exciting programmes of work.

Our ambition is that Salford will become the destination of choice for students who will have exceptional levels of employability when they graduate. Digital IT  is a key enabler for the University to achieve this!
