Going for Gold: Launch event and people profile

Going for Gold profile
Going for Gold is a new strategy co-created by staff and students, which aims to deliver the vision of an outstanding, inclusive world-class education at Queen Mary. We spoke to Tom Longbottom (Students' Union Vice President Barts and The London), Professor Alastair Owens (Head of the School of Geography) and Emmanuel Nibo (Senior Project Manager in Estates and Facilities), who are leading on Going for Gold pillar four to enhance and improve the campus environment. Hear what they had to say.
