Strategic plan


Impact 2030

Monash University’s research and education is focused on addressing the challenges of the age for the betterment of our communities, both locally and globally.

Our new Strategic Plan, Impact 2030, charts the path for how the University will actively contribute to addressing these challenges through its research and education, and in collaboration with government, industry, alumni, donors, and community.

Commitment to Indigenous peoples

We’re committed to fostering a society that recognises, respects and includes Indigenous peoples, cultures and knowledge by working with and celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as well as Indigenous peoples of other places where Monash has a campus or major presence.

Monash University is committed to supporting and contributing to:

  • The Uluru Statement from the Heart process for a First Nations Voice to the Commonwealth Parliament of Australia; and
  • Treaty discussions in the state of Victoria and the Yoo-rrook Justice Commission.

Global challenges

In this third decade of the 21st century, among many challenges, three are significant for us all and global in their scale and implications.

Our strategic goals

Built from the University’s culture and values as they have developed since its beginnings in the 1960s, our four strategic goals were set during the formulation of Monash University’s previous Strategic Plan in 2014.

These goals have been redefined for the next decade to support the University’s response to climate change, preserving geopolitical security and fostering thriving communities.


Through foundations of culture and capabilities, we have outlined the values that will underpin the behaviours and decisions of the University and shape Monash culture, and the key performance and outcomes to assess the implementation of Monash University’s Strategic Plan.
