Strategic Plan 2011 - 2015
Vice Chancellor's Message
Southern Cross University is growing: more students, more world-leading research and deepening connections with our communities. However, we must properly plan for this growth. This is why the Strategic Plan 2011 - 2015 is important. It guides our internal planning processes, the decisions we need to make and the priorities we need to identify.
Professor Peter Lee FTSE
