Feedback from the first phase of consultations around our new strategic plan was overwhelming and I thank all those who provided insightful, thoughtful and honest submissions.
In all we received 129 written submission with many jointly submitted by groups and totalled 457 pages.
The feedback has informed the next phase of our consultation process and takes the form of a Strategic Discussion Paper which outlines proposed commitments and possible ways forward with our strategy.
The paper is an envelope of options and inclusion in this document means the proposal is under consideration. By no means is it a guarantee that it will form part of the new strategy.
You will find the paper offers a potential approach to a given area and seeks feedback on it while in other cases, several options are outlined with a request to consider which one may work best for Griffith.
We are now seeking written feedback to email: firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of June on the question and options contained in the Strategic Discussion Paper.
The consultation process will culminate in the consideration of a Strategic Plan by the University Council later this year, most likely covering the period through to 2025 which marks the 50th anniversary of Griffith’s first student intake and its functional commencement as a university.
I invite you to continue to participate actively in this process so we can work together to create a bright future for our university.
