A key commitment in the University’s strategic plan - Enterprise25 - is to introduce a program-focused organisational structure. We have an ambition to orient ourselves around our academic programs and ensure our resources are focused on the quality of our teaching, research and the student experience.

Over recent months staff and students have engaged in collaborative exercises to co-create a potential future model of the University organised across new Academic Units. This has helped to inform a Discussion Paper, prepared by the University’s Senior Management Group, to seek feedback from the University community on the proposed academic organisational transformation.

The Discussion Paper details the proposed academic organisational structure, composition and titles of the proposed new Academic Units, and outlines the transition approach. A series of discussion questions are provided for consideration and feedback.

Feedback on the Discussion Paper is now closed.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit their feedback via the submission form, dedicated email inbox and via the University’s series of town halls. All responses will be reviewed and considered  by the Senior Management Team over the next few weeks In the meantime, you will still be able to download the Discussion Paper and view the Frequently Asked Questions below.
