Strategic Plan

The Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation at the University of Alberta has been dedicated to improving the quality of life and the health of our communities through physical activity, sport and
recreation for more than 50 years.

Building on our contributions and reputation, we have completed a five-year strategic plan that reflects the needs and opportunities identified by the talented staff and faculty members who encompass our Faculty. This plan emphasizes learning and discovery as essential in all Faculty centres and units; outstanding research achievements; working together to succeed through multi-disciplinary initiatives and stakeholder collaborations; a diverse and engaged student body on campus and from afar; and, innovative programs and learning opportunities across the lifespan.

This strategic plan is designed to position the Faculty as a recognized expert in physical activity, sport and recreation, and a respected partner in advancing health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and society as a whole. We will use this plan as the basis of ongoing work throughout the entire Faculty — Academics,Athletics and Campus & Community Recreation — to help us continue to contribute to the communities we serve.
