At the heart of our strategy is our shared common purpose: to create and sustain a university in which, for the benefit of both Australia and the wider world, the brightest researchers and the most promising students, whatever their social or cultural background, can thrive and realise their full potential.

This website contains information on our current Strategic Plan 2011-2015, as well as links to previous strategic plans. Over the course of 2015 the University will formulate its next five-year strategic plan, in consultation with staff, students and key stakeholders. Should you have any queries regarding the consultation process, please contact

Further updates to this page will become available throughout the year in the lead-up to next year’s launch of the Strategic Plan 2016-2020.

Planning for 2016–20

In 2015 we will develop our 2016-20 Strategic Plan, informed by a wide-ranging consultation with our staff, students and other key stakeholders.

To begin this conversation, the University surveyed staff and students in March and April. Their feedback is being analysed ahead of a series of discussion papers, focus groups and other consultation opportunities that will run from June to August.
