Strategic Plan 2015-2020 Formulation Process and Timeline

The University started the process to formulate the Strategic Plan 2015-2020 following the Cabinet’s approval on 16 June 2014. A background document on “University Major Achievements 2010-2015” (as listed in Appendix 1) was then prepared to facilitate the discussions with campus stakeholders.

The consultation process started in July with 12 meetings held with Cabinet members and some senior staff to collect their ideas so as to formulate the conceptual framework of the Strategic Plan. The second round of consultation commenced in October through a series of face-to-face meetings, based on a discussion guide, to solicit the inputs of Deans, Heads of academic units, Heads of central academic support units, alumni representatives from Convocation and Eminence Society, and student representatives from Students’ Union, CityU Postgraduate Association and Colleges/Schools. To seek wider consultation among the university community, open invitations were sent to faculty and staff to invite their views and inputs through an online platform in November 2014. Details of meeting dates and online consultation timeline are presented in Table A.

The Strategic Plan 2015-2020 was formulated on the basis of these consultations to guide the University’s development in the next 5-year period, so as to realise its vision and mission, and to excel in research and professional education.
