UVic's Strategic Framework

Our vision

We will be the Canadian research university that best integrates outstanding scholarship, engaged learning and real-life involvement to contribute to a better future for people and the planet.

Our values

Our values inform all our actions in achieving our vision:

  • Excellence in all our endeavours
  • Ethical and intellectual integrity
  • Freedom of inquiry and freedom of speech
  • Equity, diversity and inclusion

The University of Victoria’s new Strategic Framework 2018-2023 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 Strategic Framework will serve as a guide to the future – setting out priorities and high-reaching goals in six key areas.

The UVic community is deeply committed to contributing to a better future for people, places and the planet. It is with this in mind that our new Strategic Framework articulates our shared understanding of our vision, values and priorities in fulfilling that commitment.
