THE University of the South Pacific has launched its new Strategic Plan for 2013-2018.

The plan, which was launched by chancellor Aliki Faipule Kerisiano Kalolo, was approved last November and builds on the positives of the Strategic Plan for 2010-2012.

The theme of the new plan is transforming USP from good to excellent. The university is expected to spend about $241million on implementing it.

According to a statement, the plan would highlight six priority areas — learning and teaching; student support; research and internationalisation; regional and community engagement; our people; and governance, management, leadership, and continuous improvement — and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).

"Under the plan, the university will focus on its people, quality, regional campuses, postgraduate studies, research, global leadership in areas such as Pacific arts, climate change and oceans, entrepreneurialism, and being a regional exemplar," the statement read.

Vice-chancellor Professor Rajesh Chandra said as important as the plan was, it was equally important to acknowledge the process by which it was developed.

The launch was attended by the President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, and members of the diplomatic corps.
