Strategic Plan for University of Western Australia, Albany Campus

Keston Technologies recently completed a Strategic Plan for the University of Western Australia’s operations in Albany. The strategic planning required stakeholder consultations, community consultations and background research to define the contextual and environmental scanning information that would underpin the development of the UWA Great Southern Campus Strategic Plan. The information was compiled by reference to the UWA Albany Strategic Planning Working Party and the UWA Steering Group, together with other stakeholders and desk-based research. Through the consultation process, it became very clear that the success of a regional campus, such as UWA Albany campus, relies on building education, research and community programs that reflect the strengths and needs of the region. These are different in several ways from the main UWA campus and needed to be recognised, both at the local level and by UWA as a whole. The information collated through the consultations was brought together in order to provide an overarching vision and mission. On the basis of the vision, including a detailed clarification of what is meant within it, a number of goals and strategic for UWA Albany were developed and now form the core of the Strategic Plan.
