Sustainable Development Goals
Alignment with National
and Global objectives
The University of Newcastle is committed to aligning our strategic priorities to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We are proud to be home to Australia's only United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) accreditedInternational Training Centre for Authorities and Leaders (CIFAL) institute and the only University in Australia to fly the United Nations flag.
We will benchmark our strategic activity against the 17 SDGs, providing a globally recognised framework to measure our impact. Our strategy is also inspired by the Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration, which sets a vision for a world-class education system for all Australians that promotes equity and excellence, and creates successful lifelong learners who are active and informed members of the community.
We will support the achievement of the Declaration's Goals and Commitments to Action through our University's activities.
