Strategic Academic Plan

The 2015-2020 Strategic Academic Plan was approved by Senate on November 18, 2015.  The plan was developed under the leadership of the Senate Academic Planning Committee and the Vice-President Academic Advisory Council.  Several consultation drafts were shared with the Laurier community and the resulting feedback significantly strengthened and improved the final plan.

The Strategic Academic Plan articulates three key goals for the next five years: 

  • to enhance academic excellence;
  • to expand experiential and community-engaged learning;
  • to work toward a more diverse and inclusive university. 

In the coming months, Faculties and academic support and administrative units will be working internally and collaboratively on work plans which align with these goals.  In a time of challenge and change within the university sector, this plan will position Laurier for continued success.
