The UNSW Sport Strategy was developed between August 2016 and March 2017 and received input from multiple sports stakeholders at UNSW including clubs and societies, senior UNSW staff, partners who deliver sport and recreation services to UNSW students, alumni, external sporting bodies and other universities. The process also involved a series of focus groups to enable as broad a range of input into the strategy. 

The benefit of this collaborative process allows us to build a collective psyche for UNSW sport where all participants, whether in elite level teams or playing social sport, better understand and respect the participation of others and share a common passion for UNSW Sport.
