Abstract

This paper considers research focusing on the role of strategic planning as a vehicle for sustainable development across the Welsh higher education sector and as a measure of impact for government policies. The higher education sector launches the careers of future leaders, designers and innovators and has a responsibility to ensure they are equipped with appropriate skills to facilitate effective sustainable development. The Welsh Government has commissioned several initiatives to drive sustainability within the education sector in Wales and specifically across higher education institutions. Strategic planning in higher education is a tool to implement change, and in analysing the strategic plans, common ground among Welsh higher education institutions regarding the impact of Government policies is identified. Outcomes of analysis include response times to government initiatives, the increase in momentum for student and staff health and well-being, and the attention assigned to integrating sustainability within the strategic planning process.
