Uni Canberra goes the griffin

There’s an announces this morning of a 20-year masterplan, “for growth while connecting with the community”

What, you ask, the plan former VC Deep Saini commissioned and which was originally expected at the end 2019? If the one revealed is “driven by a vision of how universities will operate in the future, abolishing the boundaries between the academy, industry and community of all ages, establishing UC as a showcase of the confluence of living, learning, innovation and entrepreneurship,” (CMM May 27 2019) that will be it.

It certainly sounds like it, today’s plan “embraces the concept of the ‘educated life’ – integrating campus with community through a range of neighbourhoods where people love, learn and work,” says VC Paddy Nixon.

Canberrans have always liked a good urban plan.
