Mission and strategies: the University Plan

In 2014, in consultation with all staff and students, Vice-Chancellor Koen Lamberts led the development of a new University Strategy. This strategy will guide and inform our activities until 2020.

After his appointment in September 2019, Vice-Chancellor Charlie Jeffery began to develop a new strategy for the next ten years. Consultation with staff and students on this vision began in October 2019. The intention is to develop a vision for our future by January 2020.
