Strategic planning process

This fall, Wilfrid Laurier University will embark on a strategic planning process that will lay out our bold vision for the next five years (2019-2024). This is our opportunity to set institutional priorities and establish measurable goals for the university that will shape our future.

Beginning Sept. 17, we are launching the planning stage of this process. This exercise will engage students, staff, faculty and alumni to gather ideas and input.

Strategic Planning Team

Laurier’s Executive Leadership Team (made up of vice-presidents and the senior executive officer, Brantford) will provide oversight and support to the planning process and a steering committee will lead research, consultation and development of the plan. The steering committee, comprised of 27 members including faculty, staff and students representing all areas of the university, will be established and begin meeting in October. Additionally, there will be a resource group that will provide subject matter and operational expertise to the steering committee on an as-needed basis.

Next Steps

In the spring, the plan will be presented to the Senate and Board of Governors for approval.

As we move through this planning phase, we will keep you updated about opportunities to participate in planning Laurier’s future.

Together, we continue to build a multi-campus university that has real impact on the people and communities it serves. Our new strategic vision will provide tangible, aspirational goals on which we can work together to achieve.
