Introducing Queen's Strategic Framework 

 

Dear Queen’s Community,

Today marks the next step in the development of a new strategy for our university. Earlier this month, the Board of Trustees approved a strategic framework which sets out the vision, mission and values of our institution. This is the product of more than a year’s worth of consultations with many of you and I am grateful for your time, honesty and extremely thoughtful and reflective consideration of this process.

The next step in this process is to implement the strategy by bringing to life the strategic goals with complementary operational priorities. To this end, I am establishing six working groups, chaired by faculty members and comprised of faculty representatives, Senate members, staff and students. These groups will meet over June and July to develop two or three operational priorities that will assist in implementing each of the strategic goals set out in the new framework. It is expected that the groups will undertake public consultation, so there will be opportunity for broad community participation and feedback. 

The finalized priorities will become part of an operational plan, to be drafted by a steering committee chaired by me and comprised of the working group Chairs, members of the senior leadership team and the Deans. I will unveil the completed plan in the fall to both our internal and external stakeholders so we can begin to fully implement what I believe is a bold, new vision for Queen’s. 

This is an exciting time for our institution and I look forward to continuing to engage with all of you as we build our future together.
