UFS Strategic Plan 2018-2022

Strategic Plan
The Strategic Plan of the University of the Free State (UFS) for 2018-2022 was approved by the UFS Council on 22 January 2018. The plan is a commitment by the UFS to distinguish itself over the next five years as an institution based in central South Africa, which will pursue the delivery of excellent quality graduates and knowledge through academic excellence, diversity and inclusivity and through innovative and transformative thought, for the region, the continent, and the globe.

UFS Strategic Plan: 2018-2022

Integrated Transformation Plan

The development of the Integrated Transformation plan (ITP) started in January 2017 when the rectorate, deans, directors, student leadership, union representatives, and members of Council met with the incumbent Rector and Vice-Chancellor to identify the areas of transformation which the UFS needed to focus on, as well as the process going forward. Transformation is not the task of a single individual or even a group of people; transformation is the responsibility of every member of the university community.
