The University of Plymouth was selected by the Royal Statistical Society in October 2008 to home its Centre for Statistical Education.
The Arms, Crest, Badge and Supporters forming the University's Coat of Arms were granted on 10th April 2010, in Grant 173/189, by the College of Arms.
The books represent the University's focus on learning and scholarship. The scattering of small stars, represent navigation, which has played a key role in the history of the city and the university. The scallop shells in gold, represents pilgrimage. A pelican and a golden hind support the shield and reflect both the original and later, better known, name of Sir Francis Drake's ship. The crest contains the Latin motto, "Indagate Fingite Invenite which translates as "Explore Dream Discover" and is a quote from Mark Twain, reflecting the university's ambitions for its students and Plymouth's history of great seafarers.
The Letters Patent granting Arms to the University of Plymouth were presented by Eric Dancer, CBE, JP, Lord Lieutenant of Devon, in a ceremony at the University on 27 November 2008, in the presence of Henry Paston-Bedingfeld, York Herald, the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Plymouth, Judge William Taylor, the Recorder of Plymouth, and Baroness Judith Wilcox.
In line with the university's modern, enterprising image, the Coat of Arms are rarely seen in use, other than at graduation. The university tends to use the modern globe logo on stationary and signs and are very keen to keep the Coat of Arms exclusive. The use of the arms is therefore restricted to graduations and other formal ceremonies, degree certificates and associated materials and the exclusive use by the Office of the Vice-Chancellor.
The University of Plymouth has revised its academic structure to fully reflect its enterprise vision. Key developments include: the creation of a dynamic new Business School dedicated to ethical, sustainable business skills, and supporting the economic regeneration of our city and region; bringing together complementary subjects in a new combined faculty of Science and Technology and creating the largest Marine Science and Engineering School in Europe. This new structure is reflected on the University website. Please check for updated information at www.plymouth.ac.uk/schools.
