Strategic Framework 2018-2023

UVic’s Strategic Framework articulates our shared understanding of our vision, values and priorities. It positions and inspires us to apply our commitment to excellence in research and creative activity, teaching, service and engagement to serve students, communities and the world. The framework’s objective is to serve as a guide to our future—setting out priorities in six key areas and articulating strategies to realize them.

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.

Strategic enrolment plan

UVic’s inaugural Strategic Enrolment Management (SEM) Plan plan aligns student enrolment goals with UVic’s Strategic Framework and other key institutional initiatives. It will help guide recruitment and retention efforts for the next five to 10 years.

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.

Sharpening Our Edge

Sharpening Our Edge is the university’s plan to guide and support UVic’s communications and marketing efforts between 2018–21. The plan supports UVic’s Strategic Framework and key operational plans in the service of UVic’s academic mission and the strategic goals of faculties and units.

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.
