Our Time to Lead

The five-year academic plan establishes the university’s vision to become Canada’s leading comprehensive innovation university. It builds upon our proud traditions and expands the university’s strengths for relevant programs and SRC activities, its engaging and diverse learning and teaching environment that integrates theory with practice, and strong relationships with external communities.

Over the next five years, we will focus on four interconnected priorities:

  1. Enable greater student engagement and success through exceptional experiences;
  2. Increase SRC excellence, intensity and impact;
  3. Foster an innovation ecosystem; and
  4. Expand community engagement and city building.

A set of 29 strategies support the priorities and gives ample opportunity for the university’s faculties, schools, departments and administrative units to interpret and activate the plan locally. Our Time to Lead is also our first academic plan to include a set of 14 values. They range from academic freedom and sustainability to lifelong learning and inclusion.
