UTAS’s mission is “A place where we do things for Tasmania and from Tasmania”. Its strategy and implementation are geared to improve life for Tasmanians in six areas: Educational Attainment, Health, Economic Performance, Social Inclusion, Cultural Participation, and Environmental Sustainability. It deploys outcome indicators to measure and manage progress in each area. Its innovative approach is a model for other universities around the world to consider to maximise their impact on society.
