Strategic Framework

UVic’s Strategic Framework (2018-2023) expresses our shared vision, values and priorities. It motivates us to apply our commitment to excellence in research, creativity, teaching, service and engagement. It reminds us that our priority is to serve our students and the world. 

We are currently developing a new strategic plan for UVic. Creating a new vision for the university is an exciting opportunity for all of us as we consider what the future might hold and how UVic can position itself well for that future.

ASPIRATION 2030: A Research & Creative Works Strategy

Creating a better world through curiosity, engagement & innovation

At UVic, we’re driven by our curiosity, engagement and innovative spirit to help solve the world’s biggest problems. As we list what we aspire to be and to do by 2030, we know that we are already well on our way. We’re guided by our principles, our extraordinary natural and cultural environment and our deep respect for the learning that has come before.

The UVic Research and Creative Works Strategy identifies UVic’s research aspirations, actions, outcomes and impact areas.

Equity Action Plan

The Equity Action Plan’s goals provide UVic with strategic direction to advance equity, diversity and inclusion, and to create the conditions in which everyone feels a sense of belonging: as connected and respected parts of the university community.

Climate & Sustainability Action Plan

The Climate and Sustainability Action Plan 2030 (CSAP) is a new and unique approach to sustainability and climate action at UVic. This Strategy brings all campus portfolios, academics and curriculum, research and innovation, external, Indigenous, international relations, community and government relations, communications, finance and operations together, to guide UVic as we address and adapt to global challenges faced by all universities.

Strategic Enrolment Plan

UVic’s Strategic Enrolment Management (SEM) Plan (2019-2029) aligns student enrolment goals with our Strategic Framework and key initiatives. It helps guide recruitment and retention efforts for the next five to 10 years.

Indigenous Plan

UVic’s first Indigenous Plan (2017-2022) builds on our longstanding commitment to Indigenous communities, both local and national. The plan has ambitious goals and clear accountability to continue our harmonious relationship.

Our mutual goal is to increase educational opportunities and success for Indigenous students. The plan outlines our promise to develop education, research, outreach, engagement and programs with an Indigenous focus.

The Campus Plan guides our decisions in campus land use, building qualities and location, open spaces and natural areas, and transportation and parking. It is deeply informed by extensive campus and community engagement.
