Foreword from The Vice Chancellor

The Strategic Plan 2014-2018 takes a courageous and visionary approach to the future of South Eastern University of Sri Lanka (SEUSL). It builds upon the spirit of the national strategies for higher education and the expectations of the stakeholders together with the needs of the region and the nation as a whole.

SEUSL is viewed by our students, staff and every other stakeholder as a progressive and flourishing institution that is playing a vital role in educating, and enhancing the competence and capabilities of the undergraduates. This is evident from the increase in the University's activities and reputation like opening of new faculty of Engineering, commencement of demand driven academic programs, conducting international research symposiums and increasing number of students' intake, signing of more MoUs etc.

Though the SEUSL has recognized the financial and other obstacles in its progress towards development it has also been successful in mobilizing funding from international sources. The University is committed for its effective governance, prudent financial management, and diverse sources of financing for development works which will ensure that the university is upgraded gradually to reach the superior standard.

Since its establishment, SEUSL has been always strived to be, and has become, a progressive model in the arena of higher educational institution in the country. The commitments and the intuitional will towards the provision of high quality and nationally relevant and globally recognized higher learning and research opportunities will aid us in accomplishing our vision to be an internationally renowned center in South Asia for higher learning.

Sri Lanka now seeks for exemplar and responsible educational institutions in order to be an internationally recognized higher educational hub. SEUSL with its dramatic prospects of growth will make this possible by improved governance, prompt planning, and apt curriculum revisions and updates. SEUSL is becoming well-placed to play a fundamental role, inspiring the minds of thousands of bright and talented youth, broadening their thinking and mindset towards respect for other cultures and the importance of social harmony and integration.

The philosophy of constant growth is strongly embedded in SEUSL's culture. The University will always attempt to become even better, and will work with its students, academics stakeholders, and regional and international associates to support their efforts to improve as well.

SEUSL will facilitate the delivery of key regional and national educational, research and development projects and assist in meeting regional and national development aspirations. The University aims to be recognised, trusted and admired as the think-tank of choice for the nation and a globally recognized centre of excellence in higher learning for technology and humanities and in flexible learning and teaching through the use of its state-of-the-art ICT facilities.

The Strategic Plan 2014-2018 is, therefore, committed to the transformation of SEUSL from a good to an excellent university. Since its existence from 1995, SEUSL has expanded, improved, and become one of the progressive universities in Sri Lanka, establishing an remarkable reputation in the process of its growth.

Quality adherence, Graduates Employability and international Recognition are the central overriding themes of this Strategic Plan.

This will require a change in mind-set to better and to keep improving things continually, build and strengthen teamwork, create greater cohesion, practice respect and apply values in our daily operations, and benchmark our performance against relevant national and international best practices. The Strategic Plan 2014-2018 intends to further strengthen SEUSL's administrative and governance arrangements Prepared through a consultative process involving the Deans of the Fcaulties, Heads of the academic and administrative departments and Unit, Students leaders and the members of the Senate and the Council, this Strategic Plan will guide SEUSL's transformation as a success story
