President's Campus Update

The focus of the President's Campus Update was to outline some highlights of the strategic plan consultation process so far, and share some thoughts about areas of direction for the draft plan. This was the final opportunity to engage with the strategic planning process before we start preparing the draft plan during December and January. You will have another chance to provide feedback when the draft plan is shared with the UVic community in early 2018.

President's Campus Update - Setting our course for the future

On September 15, 2017, President Jamie Cassels welcomed faculty and staff to the Continuing Studies Atrium for the annual Campus Update. The town hall-style event was an opportunity to review highlights from the past year, learn more about the current post-secondary environment and—a special focus for this edition—UVic’s upcoming strategic planning process, which utilizes the Thoughtexchange online interactive forum.

Giving UVic its Edge – The importance of diversifying our funding sources

Like many post-secondary institutions across the country, UVic is facing both challenges and opportunities in securing the funding to fulfill its academic mission, support the participation of students from diverse backgrounds and circumstances, and play a vital role in tackling the key challenges of today and tomorrow. At this session, UVic leaders presented how the university has moved to position itself for future success in attracting partnerships and philanthropy, and how you and your unit can support these initiatives to ensure UVic keeps its edge over our many competitors.
