University Charter

UC Charter 2003-2010 - Introduction

The Charter is a high-level governance document that provides a broad description of the organisation's mission, vision and role in the tertiary education system. It defines the organisation's broad strategy and outlines its contribution to national goals, the Tertiary Education Strategy (TES) and to the wider tertiary education system and stakeholders. The information contained in a Charter should, in principle, be able to endure for several years (eg, 2003-2010)
