University of Sydney 2016–20 Strategic Plan

The University of Sydney‘s 2016-20 Strategic Plan was published in March 2016 following a wide-ranging consultation with university staff, students and other key stakeholders.
The plan continues the trajectory that began almost 170 years ago with twin founding commitments to excellence and public service. By 2020, the university aims to

  • invest in outstanding research, ensuring that their best work—work of national, regional and international impact—is well supported with the right people, equipment, and physical infrastructure;
  • deepen their commitment to undergraduate education with a reinvigorated curriculum, so that graduates will develop the skills, knowledge and values they need to thrive and lead in a rapidly changing world; and
  • build a university-wide culture where staff and students are able to realise their full potential.
