Strategy, quality improvement and planning are crucial to defining the University’s vision, direction and goals. This process facilitates decision making to enable the best allocation of resources to achieve USC’s vision.
The Strategic Plan is the University’s highest-level planning document, along with the Campus Master Plan. The role of the strategic plan is to articulate the broad goals and aims of the University over the next five years.
Specific strategies complementing the Strategic Plan will be set out in various top level plans, which will apply University-wide and drive resource allocations through the budget process. These top level plans are currently under development and are expected to be released mid-2016.
Supporting strategies guide the University’s involvement in international activities and regional engagement. Operational plans for individual cost centres support initiatives outlined in both the strategic and top level plans.
The following support plans articulate the strategies which the University needs to implement to enable our students to succeed in achieving their potential:
- Indigenous Employment and Career Development Strategy 2010–2012
- Reconciliation Action Plan 2012–2014
- Disability Action Plan 2015–2018
