Advisory groups

The University of Malta embarked on a Strategic Planning Process to update its vision and mission for the forthcoming years. The Strategic Plan 2020-2025 presents a set of overall goals and a roadmap on how to achieve them. 

The roles of the Strategic Advisory Groups were to document the points raised by the respective Strategy Working Groups, compile drafts of the plan on the respective theme, and advise the Senate and Council on the strategic themes. The composition of the Strategic Advisory Groups included members of Senate, deputy deans, Senate and Council Sub-Committee Members, administrative directors and deputies, student representatives on the Senate and Council, internal advisors, external stakeholders, and members of the internal Steering Committee.
