I want to congratulate winners of the four major awards and indeed all of the nominees for making the Griffith University Alumni Awards such a success.
The University achieved yet another spectacular rankings outcome in mid-September, breaking into the Top 201-250 band for the first time on the influential Times HE World University Rankings 2020. This result is special for several reasons, including that the University improved its scores on all five main indicators – teaching, research, citations, industry and international. Moreover, 2019 stands as the first year in which Griffith has improved its position on the four major world rankings – the Times HE rankings, the Academic Ranking of World Universities, the Leiden Ranking, and the QS World University Rankings.
Rankings outcomes such as this are more than just a number and reflect across-the-board improvement by Griffith and further recognition of its standing as a major global university. A Top 250 world ranking strengthens Griffith’s ability to attract outstanding staff and students who will in turn do their part to raise academic standards further. Importantly for our alumni community it makes your qualification from Griffith University more valuable and sought-after by employers throughout the world.
As I sign off on this month’s welcome, the University’s draft Strategic Plan 2020-2025 is undergoing final changes before consideration by the University Council in mid-October. I want to sincerely thank the many alumni who have expressed views to me during consultations at various domestic and international alumni events, and through participation in focus groups and surveys.
