THE University of the South Pacific campus directors play an important role in transforming the university from a good university to an excellent one.

USP vice-chancellor Professor Rajesh Chandra said a lot of things had changed at the university and the campuses were looking better.

"As the vice-chancellor I provide strong support for regional campuses which will be further enhanced and we must all go forward from that commitment," Prof Chandra said.

He said a major part of capital expenditure for USP's strategic plan was for regional campuses.

He said the other strong and underlying fact was that government was looking to USP to be more cost-effective while delivering excellence.

"USP council is strongly looking at everything in terms of costs and benefits, so we have to measure these and be able to explain why we need to do things and justify everything that we do," he said.

Prof Chandra told campus directors to devote time to the study of the cost of courses adding that a consolidated regional campuses development plan and individual plans is vital.

He also advised the campus directors to have accountability and reminded them of the need for speedy action.
