We can turn our challenges into a strategic transformation.

The University of Alberta is embarking on a new period of transformation. The post-secondary sector is evolving quickly and the financial pressures facing the University of Alberta today are significant.

We must take urgent action, guided by our core values and our commitment to excellence in teaching, learning and community engagement.

With strategic transformation, we can build U of A’s global leadership in higher education and research. We can drive even greater social and economic growth, innovation, and creativity for the public good of the province and beyond.

Through bold action, we can set a new direction for the university of tomorrow.
