Community Consultation Sessions

Our steering committee will be hosting a series of consultation sessions where they will want to hear about your vision for the institution. They will solicit feedback on topics, such as: What does success at the University of Alberta look like to you? What are the values you want to see associated with the University? What do you think will shape our future most dramatically in the coming decades? How well-positioned is the university to take on the pressing issues that impact it?

The sessions will last an hour and will be hosted in-person. Below, we include a schedule of consultation as well as links to register for the sessions.

To craft a plan that reflects the collective aspirations of our community, we sincerely hope for your engaged participation. To inform discussion, we also encourage all participants to consult the environmental scan prior to attending.

Please register for the session corresponding to your faculty or constituency. Space is limited. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with complete session details. If we are unable to accommodate your registration due to capacity constraints, please provide feedback electronically and consider attending a town hall in the next round of consultations.
Please check back as additional sessions are scheduled.

Town Hall

On Nov. 2, President Flanagan and Interim Provost Yiu hosted a town hall about developing a new strategic plan and the opportunities that lie ahead.

Having launched the One University model and worked through the transformation of the past two years, the timing is right for us to look to the future. We can now come together to define our hopes and ambitions, to determine how the University of Alberta can lead with purpose, and how we best focus our attention and resources toward shared goals.

Our university strategic plan will guide our work to advance teaching, research and community engagement in the coming years.
