We are measured by the success of our partners, staff and students and we are committed to research, innovation and the dissemination of knowledge of public value. We are, and always will be, an inclusive university. By 2027, UTS will be a leading public university of technology recognised for our global impact. Our purpose is to advance knowledge and learning through research-inspired teaching, research with impact and partnerships with industry, the professions and community.
Our commitment – transforming to a lifetime of learning
The world is rapidly changing, and society will need to embrace a ‘lifetime of learning’ mindset to keep pace. We’ll continue to be a thought leader in this space and fundamentally shift our own operations to support development of individuals throughout
their careers and lives. We’ll build upon our excellence in learning, teaching, research with impact and close links to industry, ensuring that we do more than simply prepare people to successfully enter the workforce. We’ll focus on relevant and timely learning, equipping students with creative problem-solving and design-thinking skills. We’ll encourage students to be adaptive, flexible and resilient throughout their lives. We’ll enhance individuals and their professional skills, while directly shaping and benefiting society and communities. Since our inception, an integral building block of our success has been our outward, global focus and ability to partner with industry – this is part of our DNA. Our campus has no walls; it is deliberately designed to be porous and support connections, knowledge exchange and collaboration. This embodies our approach to engagement, permeates our teaching and research and drives our focus on transdisciplinarity.
