Welcome to the University of Tasmania (UTAS)
UTAS can only ever be as good as the people who choose to work with us; our staff and students are our most important asset. Realisation of the vision outlined in our Strategic Plan (PDF 653.6KB) is dependent on a talented workforce, committed to the innovative thinking required to conceptualise and operationalise the strategy, and the high levels of achievement required to accomplish our objectives.
The notion of partnership characterises the way we operate at UTAS. Our primary partnership is between staff and students who work together in the areas of core business for UTAS: achieving excellence in teaching and learning and research.
The University of Tasmania continues a long tradition of excellence and commitment to free inquiry in the creation, preservation, communication and application of knowledge, and to scholarship that is global in scope, distinctive in its specialisations and that reflects our Tasmanian character.
The University will provide leadership within its community, thereby contributing to the cultural, economic and social development of Tasmania through its Statement of Values.
