objectives objectives. It proposes the introduction of new programmes and  stablishment of campuses, in line with the multi-campus mandate of the institution, in a logical and chronological manner. The plan responds to stakeholders’ expectations for top class tertiary education, in the light of weak financial and other challenges on student enrolment and programme quality, inadequate logistical and support services as well as weak relationship of tertiary institutions with employers of labour and absence of entrepreneurial development skills in core programmes.

Broad thematic areas that formed the basis of the Strategic Plan include Human Resource Development; Teaching, Learning and Research Excellence; Physical infrastructure Development;  Internationalization; Quality Assurance; Information
Communication Technology; Environmental Safety; Maintenance and Sanitation; Ancillary Services; Financial Resource Mobilization; and Governance and Leadership. A major component of the plan is the financial requirements and the strategies for meeting these strategic objectives.
The Plan is split into three phases (immediate 2016 – 2020, medium 2020 – 2023 and final 2023 – 2026) and provides clearly attainable goals and measurable indicators with time frames and responsible actors.

Contacts of the Office

The ultimate aim of the Plan is to raise the level of the University to achieve its vision and mission in a cost-effective and proactive
manner. The support of all sections of the University from students, Junior Staff to the Council is assumed and should be seen as paramount to the achievement of the vision and mission of a young University tasked with generating, advancing and applying
knowledge in energy and natural resources sciences.
