Strategic Enrolment Management plan

UVic’s SEM planning process began in January of this year and is based on our new Strategic Framework for the university. SEM planning creates a process and framework for us to align recruitment and retention functions with major planning documents like the Strategic Framework, our International and Indigenous plans. We anticipate that the SEM plan will outline 6 key enrolment goals that can be achieved within a 5-10 year window. The plan is not about quick fixes or immediate changes. It is about incremental changes over time that are closely aligned with our institutional aspirations and directions.
