Enterprise IT Strategy (2021 - 2023)

Information Technology (IT) directly supports UQ's strategic mission to provide knowledge leadership for a better world.

IT will focus on 4 key areas in the long-term to help UQ achieve its mission. We will:

  • use technology to facilitate partnerships and collaboration to develop a diverse community of knowledge seekers and leaders
  • embed technology into every aspect of UQ's professional services to reach key operational objectives.

We're dedicated to providing game-changing, digitally enhanced services, platforms and experiences for UQ's diverse community. The Enterprise IT strategy defines our vision, mission and goals for the future.
