Welcome to the Faculty of Science Strategic Planning Blog

Welcome to the Faculty of Science Strategic Planning Blog

Thank you for visiting our blog. The Faculty of Science at the University of Alberta is developing a new five-year strategic plan. We need your help in creating a vision for the future. What should we be doing today to set the Faculty up for further success five years from now? Ten years from now? Let's be bold. Let's be creative. Let's create a plan that is challenging but realistic to achieve. Together we can chart a course that will engage our talented students, staff, and faculty members as we work to advance the frontiers of knowledge to the benefit of our community, province, country, and the world.

Please contribute your ideas and feedback. I hope to have all the input needed for the plan by the end of June, and then write the document over the summer.

Faculty of Science Strategic Plan

To all faculty and staff in Science. Also to all undergrad and grad associations in Science:

After six months of consultation with students, staff, and faculty, a draft of the Faculty of Science's five-year strategic plan is now available for feedback. Please take time to review the document at: science.ualberta.ca/stratplan.

Our five-year plan is a living document and we will revisit it often. I am excited about the creative insights that it contains, and look forward to all members of Science working together to achieve the ambitious targets.

Thank you to everyone who has participated in the consultation process. Your input was critical to creating a vision that was focussed on a manageable number of initiatives that had the potential to be transformative.

Please give us your feedback. You can post your comments here on the Science Strategic Plan blog or contact me by email Dean.Science@ualberta.ca.

Thank you,

Jonathan Schaeffer
