Find out how CDU continues to influence and strengthen the social and economical development of northern Australia and the Asia-pacific region in the following corporate publications. Charles Darwin University aims to be recognised as a leader in student support and the provision of pathways from vocational training through to advanced research degrees. A major priority will be finding ways to improve student participation and retention, particularly in regional and remote Australia and among disadvantaged groups, through traditional and non-traditional approaches to education delivery and support, and enhanced on-campus experience. Through these approaches we aspire to lead national change and become the ‘university of choice’ for Indigenous students in particular, as well as for international students in the Asia−Pacific region. CDU will continue to draw on the priorities of the Northern Territory and the Asia−Pacific region in driving innovation, framing our education and training programs and focusing our research efforts, while continuing to grow our student base locally, nationally and internationally. To produce graduates who competently meet the challenges of a complex, changing world, we will focus on flexible, high quality local and distance education to provide the skills, learning and workforce that people of the Northern Territory, the nation and the Asia−Pacific region require. Critical to achieving our goals over the next decade will be the quality and satisfaction of our staff. By providing the support and services staff require, and demanding the highest levels of staff professional and ethical conduct, we will maximise our efficiency and accountability and ensure the ongoing value of our contribution to the community and the region.Through implementation of this Strategic Plan, CDU will enable both staff and students to.
