A Plan for the University of Victoria
To achieve our vision and mission as a university, we must focus on four key areas and goals:
Goal: to recruit and retain a diverse group of exceptionally talented students, faculty and staff and to support them in ways that allow them to achieve their highest potential (more...)
Goal: to offer programs in teaching, research and support of such quality as to place us in the upper 20 per cent of a national set of comparable programs as judged by peer evaluation (more...)
Goal: to establish UVic as a recognized cornerstone of our community, committed to the sustainable social, cultural and economic development of our region and our nation (more...)
Goal: to generate the resources necessary from both public and private sources to allow us to achieve our objectives and to steward those resources in a sustainable fashion. (more...)
These goals are interdependent, and most initiatives of strategic importance transcend several or all of these areas.To achieve these strategic goals requires establishing a series of objectives and the strategies needed to accomplish them. The following sections of the plan outline these objectives and strategies. Given the diversity of activity at our university, they range in focus from the strategic to the operational. Each strategy identified indicates the office(s) with primary responsibility for implementation. More importantly, the success of this plan, as with the earlier version, will be dependent upon academic and support units responding to these goals and objectives within their unit-level planning. These unit-level plans are then incorporated into our ongoing budget and staffing plans as part of the annual integrated planning process led by the Provost.
