The planning cycle of the Strategic Plan 2016–2020 began in March 2015, comprising three phases: alignment, elaboration and finalization. The strategic planning process seeks to invoke a reflection of the status quo, followed by articulation of our aspirations, and then to crystallize these aspirations into a concrete plan for implementation.
Seven consultation sessions were held in 2015 during the alignment phase.
|16.4.2015||Faculties of Arts, Business Administration, Education, Law and Social Science|
|21.4.2015||Four foundation Colleges|
|22.4.2015||Five new Colleges|
|7.5.2015||Faculties of Engineering, Medicine and Science|
Another series of two consultation sessions were organized during the elaboration phase (on 9 and 10 November 2015) before the finalization phase (when the final draft of the Strategic Plan was made available in early March 2016 for comments).
Through an iterative process involving a wide spectrum of stakeholders engaged via multiple channels, the Strategic Plan has been formulated to serve as an overarching framework with clearly defined directions and focus, while being robust enough to respond to evolving needs and circumstances.
A dedicated website has been developed to facilitate dissemination of information and provide a complete documentation of the formulation process of the Strategic Plan 2016–2020.
