Organisational Unit Reviews

In 2013, the Executive Committee of the University of Newcastle agreed to institute a schedule of external reviews of organisational units.

In this context, an organisational unit refers to support units providing essential infrastructure, processes, policies and services to the University—the Divisions, the units within them, and academic Schools.

The intention of these reviews is to provide a coherent, externally-referenced, and consultative process to obtain feedback on the performance, resourcing, capability and capacity of the organisational unit.

The aim is to promote a culture of self-review tailored to the University's strategic objectives, from which continuous improvement initiatives are identified and implemented.

The reviews are undertaken by a Panel of external experts and are normally chaired by a senior UON staff member.
