There is now a new webpage that describes the University’s new strategies and priority areas.
The strategy gives us SLU staff a clear guidance on goals and priorities, and provides a tool to facilitate strategic decisions throughout the operations.
Three focus areas
The process of developing activities and plans within the three priority focus areas has been in full swing since the strategy was decided:
- SLU’s next steps for sustainable development
- SLU in the digital society
- One SLU
Each focus area has an overall goal and contains several sub-components and activities. All these are presented in the overall strategy webpage.
The process has continued at the Faculties with the implementation of their strategies, based on the overall SLU strategy. These are also presented on the webpage.
Welcome to exciting reading!
A new strategy model
In SLU's new strategy model, the Faculties' strategies are appendices to the University strategy. There are no separate policy documents regarding education, environmental monitoring and assessment, collaboration or internationalisation. These are all included in the University strategy.
Another difference compared with the previous strategy model is that the prioritised activities are now presented in in the University’s yearly revised plan of operations.
This means that the follow-up of how the strategy is implemented and the revision of the activities become part of the usual annual cycle for operational planning and financial allocation.
