Action Set 3

Action set 3: Increased human capital in the classroom and increased efficiencies beyond

UniSA will develop a high performing, sustainable workforce, one that is dedicated to the provision of excellence in all its forms. 

We will recruit people who are:

  • Student and client focused, culturally aware, effective communicators and collaborators;
  • Passionate about education and committed to a culture of excellence;
  • Aligned with the key goals that characterise this university.

We will appoint 100 new academic staff at levels D and E across our research themes and key disciplinary strengths. 

We will engage more leaders of the professions as practitioners-in-residence and adjunct staff.

We will emphasise leadership that has a strong focus on team-based approaches, mentoring and collaboration.
