Positioning for Success

"Why UVic?" It's a simple, but fundamental question we need to answer if we're going to remain a university of choice for students, faculty, staff, donors, employers and the diverse communities we serve.

Today, all universities must communicate their advantages in a world of new opportunities as well as of shrinking high school demographics, increased student mobility, heightened emphasis on social relevance and tighter funding constraints.

UVic has a great opportunity to build on our strong reputation.

Now is the time to be bold—to be proactive about defining the UVic difference, our distinct advantages, and why they're more relevant than ever.

That's why your input into this project is so important.

Share your views—let's shape the UVic story together.
