Increased scholarships and bursaries for students; new and upgraded facilities; and significant steps towards the integration of Indigenous culture and perspectives into all areas of university life. These are just three of the many successes highlighted in “Sharing Our Progress,” a mid-term progress report on the university’s strategic plan. The report is now online, and includes highlights from the five priority areas, as reported between January 2015 and March 2017.
Other accomplishments highlighted within the report include:
- The launch of the university’s first Accessibility Plan
- The renewal of 136 learning spaces
- The announcement of an expanded childcare facility
- The allocation of new Indigenous scholar positions to six faculties
- A jump in research income from $162.5 million to $186.8 million
- An increase in undergraduate research awards, from 82 to 102
“The remarkable progress that has been made is a credit to all members of our community, including our faculty, staff, students and partners,” says President David Barnard “This interim report provides insight into the many ways in which we are engaging with the broader community to deliver on our collective institutional priorities.”
The report also highlights priorities moving forward to the conclusion of the strategic plan.
