Strategic Direction to 2020

At its meeting on 14 July 2020, the University Council approved an extension to the ‘expiry date’ of the University’s Strategic Direction to 2020 to the end of 2021. 

Work has been underway on a reset of Strategic Direction to 2020 called Vision 2040. The disruption caused by COVID-19 has delayed the process, which has recommenced and will continue into 2021.
