Welcome to Laurentian University’s 2023 Strategic Planning Process
As part of our work to develop a new strategic plan, we are engaging with our stakeholders to ensure that the plan reflects the needs of those stakeholders, both now and into the future.
Join us as we engage with our stakeholder communities to chart a path forward for Laurentian’s bright future, and lead the way in supporting learning, research, and community in Northern Ontario.
Community Engagement: Your Voice Matters!
Read the What We Heard Report summarizing feedback from the consultations with our Laurentian community on our new strategic plan.
More than 2,500 people participated in the consultations throughout the Summer and Fall of 2023 in both French and in English. The consultations involved twenty (20) one-on-one interviews, fifteen (15) focus groups, twenty (20) group interviews, four (4) drop-in engagement sessions, and four (4) online surveys.
Also available is Laurentian’s Landscape Report
As part of the next phase of this process, we are pleased to announce our second round of engagement that will provide students, staff, and the local community an opportunity to share their thoughts on the draft plan.
In addition to a Town Hall and the drop-in engagement sessions, we are launching a survey.
Our Validation Feedback Survey is now live and will be open until December 1st. Complete the survey to help shape Laurentian’s new strategic plan.
