Strategic Plan 2015 - 2020: Five Overarching Strategic Themes

The Strategic Plan 2015-2020 is the outcome of three stages of campus-wide consultations that took place between June and November 2014. The process was conducted through face-to-face interviews, small group meetings and online consultations using various instruments for collecting information. Appendix 2 gives details of the consultation and approval processes.

This Plan is formulated to further consolidate CityU's successes in light of the challenges and opportunities in the current planning environment, and further advance our academic ambition to be a leading university for research and professional education both locally and globally.

To this end, the Plan has identified five overarching strategic themes to guide the University's development in order to respond to our challenges and to capitalise on our strengths and opportunities in the succeeding five years.
