Organisational Unit Reviews

ACU’s organisational unit review process commenced in 2010 and currently runs on a five to seven year cycle.

Reviews are a valuable opportunity for both the organisational unit and the University to reflect on the achievements, ensure alignment with its strategic direction, Mission and vision, and assess the effectiveness and capability of the unit in meeting the University’s current and future needs.

The purpose of the reviews is to:

  • build a culture of critical self-reflection and continuous improvement
  • ensure alignment with the university’s strategic direction, Mission and vision
  • recognise areas of strength, achievements and performance excellence
  • assess the organisational unit’s engagement with its stakeholders
  • identify areas of improvement and provide recommendations
  • explore and assess potential opportunities and future directions.
Reviews are a valuable opportunity for both the organisational unit and the University to reflect on the achievements, ensure alignment with its strategic direction, Mission and Vision, and assess the effectiveness and capability of the unit in meeting the University’s current and future needs.
