Report on the Conversation

I have shared my Report on the Conversation with the university community. The Report includes an honest and critical look at obstacles facing the institution and outlines a number of pillars for development if we are to transform Queen’s into a truly competitive international university that is globally recognized for its impact through education and research. Three significant pillars have emerged, and my report gestures broadly to these in its subheadings, all of which allude to themes from the Conversation. These are: “Articulate a Global Purpose,” “Attend to the Nature and Quality of our University Community,” and “Design & Build Partnerships for Impact.” 

In the coming months, the Report and its contents will be the focus of a dialogue I wish to have with our community so that we can develop a shared and compelling vision for our future. I want to confirm that the Report has accurately captured the principal concerns and aspirations of our community, and through an iterative process distill and refine it so that our future direction as a university is clear. When this process concludes in the new year, I intend with the approval of our Board of Trustees to introduce a strategic framework which will set a new course for our institution over the coming years.

I welcome you thoughts and comments through this form. We will be announcing over the coming weeks arrangements to enable our community to discuss the Report. I hope you will participate. 

I look forward to speaking with you further as we build a strategic framework for our future.
