The Division of Global Strategy and Engagement provides leadership and strategic direction within the University to support JCU’s ambition to become a world leader in education and research related to the tropics.

The Division is responsible for development and oversight of the JCU global strategy and marketing, international and engagement strategies. Through a centralised business development function, the Division of Global Strategy and Engagement plays a critical role working with and across the Colleges and Divisions to ensure activities undertaken throughout the University align with the JCU global strategy.

The Division includes, and has strategic oversight of, the Directorates of Marketing, Future Students, and External Engagement; and undertakes other activities including business development, special projects and oversight of the Cairns campus.

The Division is outwardly focused and provides a centralised point for the facilitation, coordination and oversight of all marketing activities, student recruitment activities, international compliance, international student support, alumni, fundraising and external engagement both domestically and internationally.

Led by Deputy Vice Chancellor, Professor Robyn McGuiggan, these activities and functions are undertaken through a collaborative approach and centrally coordinated through the Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor, DGS&E.
