The Masterplan Refresh has involved several levels of engagement and consultation with internal stakeholders (within the JCU Community) and external stakeholders within the broader Cairns region, including the Cairns Mayor. The engagement has been in the form of workshops, group interviews, individual interviews, public lectures, a staff and student survey (still available for participation) and a student urban design studio.

Dates of the engagement are outlined below:

  • Divisional Groups of JCU (completed 19 September 2018)
  • Colleges, Institutes & Centres Group Workshop (10th October 2018)
  • Tasks Group workshops (completed 10th & 11th October 2018)
  • Group meeting with the Traditional Owners of the land (10th October 2018)
  • Student Urban Design Studio (completed 10th & 11th October 2018)
  • Public Lecture (completed 11th October 2018)
  • Staff and Student Survey (ongoing)
  • Group and Individual Interviews (ongoing)

The process is still ongoing and open to all ideas and comments.
