The Office of Strategic Initiatives works at integrating people, ideas and resources to develop new, high-value learning experiences that enrich students and have a positive societal impact.
What is the UNE Innovation Hub?
The Innovation Hub is a concept to foster open communication and idea sharing. We gather people and ideas together to promote collaboration. The innovation hub is a nexus point of a continuous network formation of people, designs and information.
Why do we innovate?
In step with our rapidly changing world, higher education is evolving — as is the profile of the 21st century learner.
We embrace possibility, leading with imagination to explore potentialities. Building on existing institutional strengths, we help UNE envision its own future.
