Focusing on our future
Print Friendly Version: Strategic Plan 2009-2013 [.pdf 1.4MB]
Curtin staff can be proud of the local and international reputation we've continued to build together. However, increased competition resulting from factors such as government policy and the market forays of various other universities are an undeniable threat to Curtin's continued growth and success. The University's reputation for quality teaching and excellence in research is a hard-won asset we must protect and promote. Now is the time for us to unite the individual loyalty and pride we have for Curtin, to ensure the challenges we face serve only to build our resilience and our determination to further the University's success.
Curtin already attracts high-calibre local and international students across its campuses. Our aim is to further increase the quality of our teaching and learning and our research strengths to become one of the wider region's top 20 universities by 2020. We will meet this goal by ensuring that Curtin, as an organisation and a service provider, responds to the changing needs of the region, including the changing needs of our staff, our students and their prospective employers. We would all like to see more Curtin graduates and researchers shaping the future of nations across our region. The strategic plan will help to achieve this.
