The launch of the dedicated website will greatly assist the Regional Universities Network:

1.       To provide policy advice to government, particularly with regard to tertiary education and regional development.

2.       To strengthen and promote the contributions of regional universities to regional and national development.

3.       To build institutional capacity and sustainability through the sharing of best practice in educational delivery, training, research and organisational management, particularly with reference to regional contexts.
