Strategic priorities

Strategic partnerships

Partnering with other universities, civic organisations, industry and philanthropists ensures we are able to amplify our ingenuity and success in contributing to solutions to global challenges.

We will work with partners to address these issues through multidisciplinary research and two-way exchange of our staff and students. We will be recognised globally as an institution of excellence for our engagement and impact and sought out as a collaborative partner in the Asia Pacific Region.

Driven by people

People are the foundation of cooperative partnerships – our staff, students and alumni. Our staff will be globally engaged, contributing their knowledge and expertise to our regions. Our students will have a truly global experience and outlook characterised by diversity, mobility and knowledge exchange. Our alumni will be advocates for our University globally, helping to build our reputation and fostering a community of past, current and future learners.

For Global impact

Our physical and virtual presence in the Asia Pacific Region enables us to address challenges aligned to our Engagement Priorities through research collaboration and enriched student and staff experiences. We will establish global gateways between the University and the Asia Pacific Region.

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
