To further our vision, we will focus our activities around the following three strategic themes for 2009-2014. Underpinning the themes is our intent to advance our global and regional competitiveness and our engagement with the rest of China, as we continue to cultivate a community of excellence.

The key strategic initiatives and operational priorities under each of the themes will be supported by an enabling platform which will enhance the University’s financial, physical, human resource and operational capabilities.

The four areas outlined in Strategic Development 2003-2008 were developed to guide the University in its pursuit of world-class standing and excellence in the core attributes of a university. As such, they will continue as our underlying goals in the years to come.
