Intensify dynamic learning

The University of Victoria will be Canada’s leader in research-enriched and experiential learning. Our focus on teaching excellence and an exceptional student experience will ensure that UVic students are transformed by their time at UVic, and are equipped for personal success and to contribute effectively as alumni and global citizens.

Over the next five years we will:

  1. Strategy3.1

    Extend UVic’s expertise and leadership in experiential learning so that every student has the opportunity to engage in, and be recognized for, research, work-integrated, community-engaged or other forms of experiential learning.

  2. Strategy3.2

    Ensure that across all programs, in and out of the classroom, students actively develop the skills, abilities and attributes that support academic and personal success, lifelong learning, leadership and social responsibility, as set out in the University of Victoria Learning Outcomes.

  3. Strategy3.3

    Foster teaching excellence and innovation by supporting and recognizing inspiring teachers who use evidence-based teaching practices to enhance student engagement and learning, including technology-integrated, interdisciplinary, experiential and other transformative learning experiences.

  4. Strategy3.4

    Design and continually update quality curricular and co-curricular programs that positively impact the student experience, foster wellness and resilience, and support the achievement of educational goals and timely graduation.

  5. Strategy3.5

    Develop and evolve high-quality academic programs that align with UVic strengths and directions; are responsive to student interest and social need; provide students with meaningful opportunities to engage with issues from diverse perspectives; and are financially sustainable.
