Strategic Framework 2019-2024
The Strategic Framework for Bishop’s University articulates our collective vision, mission and values, and sets out our priorities and objectives for 2019-2024. This ambitious framework is the result of extensive consultation and reflects the contributions and ideas of people across our campus and beyond.
The framework’s primary objective is to guide our future decisions and actions. It will inform the overall planning and budget allocations of the University, and it will provide guidance to faculty and staff in all academic and administrative units when undertaking their own planning activities.
The implementation of the framework depends upon engagement and commitment from every sector of the University. It challenges all of us to think strategically about the plans and activities in our own areas, and our roles in translating the priorities into concrete actions. Guided by the framework, detailed plans will be created in a number of areas, and tools will be developed and used to assess and report on progress. Annual reports on implementation of the Strategic Framework will be submitted to the Board of Governors, Senate and the wider University community.
