This Strategic Plan elevates our ambition for NUI Galway.

Successful delivery requires the continuing active involvement and engagement of the entire University community. The Plan provides a direction for our Colleges, Schools, Research Institutes and major support units. Over the next five years, each unit in the University – both  academic and support – will be required to produce annual operational plans with associated targets aligned to this Strategic Plan. The outputs of each of these operational plans will be reviewed on an annual basis by an Operational Planning Steering Group, which will report, in turn, to the University Management Team and Údarás na hOllscoile.

We will remain sensitive to changes in our operating environment throughout the period of the Plan, responding to new opportunities and adapting as required. There will be regular reporting on progress during the implementation phase to the Standing and Strategic Planning Committee of Údarás na hOllscoile, as well as systematic updates for the University community.

The President will oversee an annual review of the Strategic Plan, and formally report on the findings to Údaras na hOllscoile – our Governing Authority.
