BHAG #1: Undergraduate to Graduate Student Ratio

The ratio of number of undergraduate students (UG) to graduate students (GS) is currently 5.5 to 1 (UG2GS). Within 10 years, the Faculty of Science must bring the UG2GS ratio down to at least 4:1. For this strategic plan, an intermediate objective of a UG2GS ratio of 4.5:1 will be targeted.
