Westminster's Steering Group
Launched in June 2021, Westminster’s institution-wide SDG Steering Group is focused on linking research, teaching, operations and communications to the SDGs. It is supported by a wider network of colleagues and students progressing the SDGs through various sub-groups across the University. The Steering Group meets four times per year and must report at least twice each year to the University Executive Board (UEB), the University’s senior management committee, to ensure that inclusion, sustainability and social responsibility activities are united into one cohesive programme and reporting mechanism. Chaired by the Vice- Chancellor, UEB’s membership includes the Deputy Vice-Chancellors, Pro Vice-Chancellors and Heads of Colleges, and the University Secretary and Chief Operating Officer. One example of their impact is that all future project annual reports must include a section on SDG impact in order to monitor, measure and report on the positive impact being made by researchers.
