FORT SMITH, NT – Aurora College released its 2020-2021 Corporate Plan today (November 3) – the first annual plan that will support the College’s new three-year Strategic Plan.

The Corporate Plan is a document released annually that lays out a clear planning approach for the College with timely reporting focused on transparency and accountability. It outlines objectives set by the institution for the year, and includes a discussion of business activities, strategic issues and future objectives. The 2020-2021 Corporate Plan is the first detailed description by Aurora College of how a number of the transformation projects and processes will be implemented.

The Corporate Plan also outlines performance measures that will increase transparency and drive continuous quality improvement throughout the College’s transformation to a polytechnic university and beyond. The enhanced performance measurement system is an essential step in implementing the new Strategic Plan.

“At this stage of Aurora College’s transformation into a polytechnic university, the aim is to establish a performance measurement system that will strengthen the College’s foundation and set the context for key transformational changes,” said Andy Bevan, Aurora College President.
