Lincoln University Vice-Chancellor Professor James McWha says in the 2017 Annual Report overview that Lincoln University can look forward with optimism.
The report is now available here.
“Lincoln has retained its traditional strengths: a relaxed environment where students are mindful of each other, small classes and highly accessible staff, and strong applied research conducted in the national interest,” Professor McWha said.
The report shows an operating surplus of $7.1 million and covers a year where an agenda of change continued at Lincoln University, while 2017 also saw Lincoln achieve enrolment targets and design a new set of transferable majors and courses.
By the end of 2017, major initiatives had been launched and were making strong progress, including modifying courses into a format for blended delivery, course and programme financial evaluation, and a model for reorganisation of the University’s academic structure.
Professor McWha said the University community also engaged with the Transformation Board, providing information and views, with the objective of ensuring a sustainable university fully engaged with partners, industry and government whilst continuing as a critic and conscience of society.
Chancellor Steve Smith congratulated the entire University "for working extremely hard to right the ship so we can now set a true course for the future".
