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.

Online survey about 2016–20 Strategic Plan

In late March 2015, the University launched a survey to invite staff and student input into the development of the 2016-2020 Strategic Plan. The survey is being administered on the University's behalf by Colmar Brunton, an independent research consultancy. If you have any questions about the survey, please email
