Integrated Strategic Plan


The Integrated Strategic Plan (ISP) outlines the university’s strategic directions, goals and aspirations for the five-year period from 2014/15 to 2018/19. The plan reflects the university’s determination to establish itself as a distinctive undergraduate university with a unique balance of teaching and research activities and an overriding focus on student success and providing a unique student experience.

In recognition of the multitude of issues and challenges to be addressed in transitioning from a college to a university, the university began its strategic planning initiative by examining and articulating the key characteristics that define its unique identity. These are found in the University Pillars.

Building upon the foundation of the University Pillars, the ISP was written, followed by operational plans that address the priorities in the ISP. The university’s annual budget process is also guided by the priorities found in the ISP.
