Flight Path – WSU’s Strategy for the Western Sydney Airport

flightpath

‘Flight Path’ is a comprehensive strategy that details Western Sydney University’s long-term commitment to maximising the social, cultural and economic benefits of the Western Sydney Airport for our region.

The strategy also illustrates how the thematic positioning of this expertise in accessible and collaborative locations — like Liverpool, Hawkesbury and Westmead — is key to their successful integration with the Aerotropolis.

The University’s Launch Pad start-up/scaleup incubator can activate this expertise by partnering with businesses to distribute the economic benefits of the Airport across the region.

Furthermore, the labour force required to drive new knowledge jobs will emerge from approaches to curriculum that embrace the changing nature of work and digital disruption pioneered by the University’s ‘21st Century Curriculum’ project.

The University’s groundbreaking ‘Western Growth’ program of campus transformation maximises the University’s networking capacity — a network that WSA can leverage to distribute the Airport’s economic transition effects across Western Sydney. No other organisation has the depth, range and intensity of connections across every major Western Sydney centre. No other entity can attract, enliven and engage industry, government and community connections in the way the University can.
