Three themes, inclusion, collaboration and innovation, represent key opportunities for transformational change in how we work. These cross-cutting priorities will enhance our academic impact in an increasingly complex and interconnected world. They are imperatives if we are to achieve the vision and goals of the plan. Achieving sustained excellence will require leadership and action to enable changes in culture and practice.


Sustained excellence in research, education and engagement depends on the integration of diverse perspectives and approaches.


Because opportunities and challenges are rarely confined to the expertise of a single individual, or even respect disciplinary or institutional boundaries, we must become more adept at collaboration.


In a world characterized by complex societal challenges and heightened public expectations, broad-based innovation is essential.
