Connecting with the community

Building an innovative workforce

Crossing the Horizon outlines our dedication to build a culture of innovation based on trust and empowered responsibility. What additional actions must we take to build an innovation culture that supports our students and staff?

Our graduates are remarkable and consistently amongst the most employable and work ready in the sector. How can we improve our commitment to delivering industry-relevant curriculum that is flexible and accessible and delivers excellent outcomes for students?

Online education

An innovative approach to online education is crucial to reaching new markets and the future of the higher education sector. How can we deliver a more flexible curriculum that better caters for the diverse needs of our students and which blends face-to-face and online learning activities?

Inspired research

Our vision is to be inspired by emerging challenges and new opportunities. What actions and initiatives must be undertaken now to enable us to achieve our potential?

Education beyond the city

Providing quality educational opportunities to those in regional communities and linking our metropolitan-based programs with the regions through technology and flexible delivery arrangements is of high importance.
