At UoN we believe that good leadership skills can and should be exercised and developed by anyone with the capacity to make real improvements to the University.

Leadership at UON

UON stands as a global leader distinguished by a commitment to equity and excellence and to creating a better future for its regions through a focus on innovation and impact.

2025 Vision, NeW Futures Strategic Plan 2016-25

At UON, we value leadership at all levels. As we strive to realise our 2025 Vision, we believe that good leadership skills can be developed and should be exercised by staff at all levels in the University.

Leaders understand the environment in which we operate, they think big and they act strategically. Most importantly, they envision success for themselves, those around them and for UON as a whole.

We also know that great leaders are not all born. It takes time, experience and a willingness to take a leadership role and build on leadership skills. At UON we encourage and support our emerging leaders to acquire, develop and practice their leadership skills - making a valuable investment in their own development and the University's future.


What makes a UON leader?

The UON Leadership Framework outlines a set of leadership capabilities that will support the strategic direction of the University by building leadership capability, a shared agenda and a strong leadership culture.

The framework comprises a set of principles which will support the achievement of our 2025 Vision. It outlines the expected behaviours and characteristics that will build leadership capacity and capability at UON and as such, is a significant step for recruitment and succession planning at the University.
