The new strategic plan that takes the University of Saskatchewan through 2025 is a description of the goals over the next seven years and a framework for some of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action.
First Nations, Metis and Inuit partners helped to create the strategic plan.
U of S President Peter Stoicheff says Indigenization is not separate. It runs through every commitment, “and that’s the university of the future”.
The five key areas the university will focus on are transformational work leading to reconciliation, productive collaboration, meaningful impact, developing distinguished learners, and earning global recognition.
The goals of the new plan include increasing enrollment to 28-thousand students, improving academic rankings, more alumni engagement and continuing to be a leader among academic institutions in Indigenization.
