This Campus Update provided an overview of the past, present and future of the university's 2018/19 Five-Year Capital Plan, including the recently approved, first-ever Campus Cycling Plan, and the details of the new student housing and dining project—the largest capital project UVic has ever undertaken.

UVic President Jamie Cassels officially launched the Strategic Framework 2018–23 at his annual President's Campus Update.

The update included a presentation on the highlights of the last year and an announcement of some new strategic initiatives for the coming year.

Cassels' presentation was followed by a panel discussion with representatives from faculty and staff about what the Strategic Framework means to their units, and how they are already bringing the priorities and strategies to life.

The session provided an overview of the university's recently approved 2018-19 Planning and Budget Framework as well as updates on two major institutional initiatives: strategic enrolment management and student housing.

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.
