1. Overview

The Partner Engagement Framework (PEF) measures UQ’s engagement with 418 international partner universities from 49 countries. The PEF has been updated with 2015 results measuring performance and engagement across 15 learning, discovery and engagement indicators, results are presented on a sliding scale to demonstrate low, medium and high engagement.

The number of partners in the 2015 PEF has expanded from 345 in 2014 to 418 in 2015. The PEF includes partners from the following areas:

  • University partners with whom the University has an active signed agreement (MOU, MOA, Letter of Intent) as per the Global Engagement agreements database
  • Universitas 21
  • McDonnell International Scholars Academy
  • edX
  • Partners with significant project collaborations as per UQ’s Research Master database.

Indicators include graphs highlighting the five year trends and detailed reporting is available via the UQ Reportal, allowing users to rank partners and apply filters to analyse performance. The dashboard also now provides the option of selecting the specific comparison year so that staff are able to see changes to specific activities over defined timeframes. The PEF will be updated annually and depending on the availability of data finalised in the first quarter of the year.

The PEF is a valuable resource when engaging with partners, assessing impact of engagement and tracking outcomes. The framework allows The University to assess areas of current strength, potential future engagement and where further development is needed to maximise the mutual benefit made possible by these partnerships.
