The plan

The original strategic plan 2015-2017 set the course for the university's focus on student retention and success, and was the result of an initial six-month development process at the beginning of 2015. This process involved Council, the Vice-Chancellor's Senior Team, the Student Retention and Success Project Team, staff and students. The Plan was open to university-wide consultation with further consideration of all feedback. The strategic plan is now, once again under review for the development of a 2018-2020 version. Priorities, objectives and strategies are currently being reviewed with a consultation goal date of mid February. Until then, we are using the fourth version of the plan (V4).
