Since its launch in 2016, For the Public GoodFor the Public Good has guided our community’s actions. Today, our university is facing unprecedented upheaval, as we deal with the largest reduction in provincial funding in recent history and
COVID-19, a global public health emergency that has impacted all we do.

At time like these, it is important to look back and reflect on what we have achieved together. Through these challenges, our shared commitment to For the Public Good and to excellence in teaching, research, and community engagement remains our focus.

The 2020 progress report not only illustrates this commitment, but demonstrates our community’s creativity and resilience. Through multiple initiatives, actions, and achievements, faculty, staff, and students across faculties and units have dedicated their individual and collective talents to build, experience, excel, engage, and sustain for the public good. Through common cause, together we continue to build a better province, a better Canada, and a better world.
