Laurentian University Launches Strategic Plan Development Process

Community members invited to participate

July 14, 2023 – Laurentian University is seeking community input to inform its new strategic plan that will help shape the future of the university and education in Northern Ontario for the next five years and beyond.

The strategic plan will serve as a roadmap for Laurentian University's future growth, development, and impact on the local, national and international stage. It will identify key priorities and initiatives that will guide the institution's actions in the coming years.

"Engaging the many communities that form our University community is integral to the success of our strategic plan. As a bilingual and tricultural institution, we benefit from diverse perspectives,” said Dr. Sheila Embleton, Interim President and Vice-Chancellor of Laurentian University. “By actively involving all stakeholders in shaping our future, we will ensure that our strategic priorities align with the needs and aspirations of our community.”

Recognizing the importance of collaboration, Laurentian University is committed to engaging with its diverse stakeholders, including students, faculty, staff, retirees, alumni, Indigenous partners, community members, industry partners, and other key stakeholders. This community engagement process aims to gather valuable insights, perspectives, and feedback to shape the future of Laurentian University.

Over the next several months, there will be numerous ways for community members to participate in the development of the strategic plan. The University will be sharing more details on these opportunities in the coming weeks.

Laurentian University will share the finalized Strategic Plan in early 2024.
