Sustainability and the Triple Helix
The University has three core strategic objectives – production of globally competitive research, provision of internationally recognised degree programs and the expansion and support of well coordinated external engagement activities.
We recognise our role in educating future leaders who will be in a position to improve global environmental conditions. As the University plays a part in moulding environmental values, attitudes and behaviours, academic leadership will include the embedding of Education for Sustainability in all curricula.
The involvement of regulatory authorities, suppliers, contractors, academic colleagues, students and community groups will be sought in documenting and achieving environmental objectives and targets. Heads of budget divisions will be responsible for ensuring all staff, students and stakeholders are engaged, encouraged and supported in achieving a sustainable campus.
