Strategic Plan

Hawke Building

Crossing the Horizon

Crossing the Horizon is a focused action plan that will deliver the aspirations of the University’s Horizon 2020 vision and establish the University’s ambition to be Australia’s university of enterprise.

It features seven key actions sets - enhanced education and student experience; industry engaged research and curriculum; increased human capital and efficiency; transformational infrastructure and enrichment of institutional culture; engagement with wider society; global reach and visibility; and the development of the governance and administrative efficiency to achieve change. The plan will be delivered between 2013 and 2018.



Unijam officially closed at midnight Thursday 30 May. Thank you to everyone who contributed over 38 hours, culminating in 18,000 posts and nearly 8,000 registrants.

The jam reached more than 50 countries and we were delighted that UniSA students constituted the largest participating group. The jam was also the most ‘tweeted’ IBM jam and the social media comment and engagement around the event was significant.

This successful online conversation has informed the drafting of a new action plan for the University. Following a consultation period with key stakeholders during June and July, the Vice Chancellor will release this action plan in August 2013.
