There are a number of University strategic planning documents and reports which state the University’s strategic directions across its core activities.

The University’s strategic planning framework provides for three tiers of interlocking plans that support the cascading of the Strategic Plan goals and strategies throughout the University.

The Griffith University annual reports are in a PDF and CSV file formats for viewing and printing purposes.
