Strategic Framework

The Strategic Framework 2014-2019

The Strategic Framework is a capstone to strategic planning at Queen’s. Its overarching goal of the strategic framework is to strengthen Queen’s vision as Canada’s quintessential balanced academy, ensuring we remain a university recognized equally for its research excellence and its transformative student learning experience.

At the framework’s core are four interconnected strategic drivers: the student learning experience; research prominence; financial sustainability; and internationalization.

Developed by Principal Daniel Woolf, Provost Alan Harrison and the Board of Trustees, the Framework outlines a multi-year strategy and a set of metrics and milestones through which the university’s progress can be evaluated. Its structure is based on the foundations laid by the Academic Plan and the Strategic Research Plan, which were both approved by the Senate in the 2011-12 academic year, as well as other planning initiatives that were ongoing at the time, such as a plan for internationalization and the renewal of the Campus Master Plan.
