Relationship to Queensland Government social and fiscal objectives (Strategic Plan 2004-2008)
The Queensland Government has identified a set of social and fiscal objectives to guide the planning of the State's statutory authorities.
A major focus of the University's activities involves support for Priority 1 ? More jobs for Queensland ? skills and innovation ? The Smart State. The University contributes strongly through its teaching, research and commercialisation activities towards achievement of the planned outcomes for this priority ? a community of well-skilled and knowledgeable people and a strong and diversified economy with a particular focus on the Smart State policies.
Through the direct contribution of its diverse teaching and research activities, as well as through the leadership provided by its expert staff in community debate and policy development, the University also contributes strongly to the remaining priorities identified by the Government ? Safer and more supportive communities; Community engagement and a better quality of life; Valuing the environment; and Building Queensland's regions.
