University plans

Strategic plan

The five-year term of the University of Victoria's 2012-2017 strategic plan - A Vision for the Future: Building on Excellence - has closed. In September 2017, UVic began an inclusive strategic planning process to sharpen its focus and determine its future direction. 

Strategic research plan

The UVic Strategic Research Plan 2016-2021 prepares the university for future research excellence and positions us to move forward as we continue to make important contributions to society and the world around us.

Indigenous plan

UVic’s first Indigenous Plan builds on our longstanding commitment to and relationships with Indigenous communities, both local and national. The plan establishes ambitious goals and clear accountability to work together to increase educational opportunities and success for Indigenous students and further develop education, research, outreach and engagement initiatives, and programs with an Indigenous focus.

International plan

The UVic International Plan: Making a World of Difference 2017-2022 takes our global commitment another step further by identifying key objectives and strategies to move us forward in this era of heightened connectivity, complex geopolitics and increased international collaboration.

Campus plan

How our campus evolves depends on the insights shared by our campus community - students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members. The current Campus Plan is the culmination of a comprehensive planning and stakeholder engagement process and it builds upon the University's 2003 Campus Plan and previous planning initiatives dating back to the defining elements and legacy of the first Campus Plan in 1961.

Campus conversations

Throughout the 2014 fall term, President Cassels engaged in a series of "Campus Conversations." In his ensuing report, ConversationsReport2014, he summarizes thematically much of what was discussed, responds to some of the concerns he heard, and seizes on many of the excellent ideas that emerged in these conversations.

Employment equity plan

The UVic Employment Equity Plan 2015-2020 affirms that equity underlies and is a pre-condition for excellence and that excellence is furthered by a diversity of people, perspectives and experiences.
