It was a year in the making, but on Friday May 31st, Faculty Council approved the first-ever Applied Health Sciences (AHS) strategic plan.
Built around a new vision and mission statement, the plan outlines the Faculty’s priorities, goals and objectives through to 2018.
This strategic plan will guide our actions, shape our plans and act as a benchmark for our successes over the next five years. I would like to sincerely thank all those who participated in the creation of the plan by offering their expertise, feedback and ideas,” said Susan Elliott, the Faculty’s Dean.
The plan was created through a consultative process with key stakeholders– including more than 800 AHS alumni, 160 staff and retirees, 140 undergraduate and graduate students, and 14 leaders from the academic, private, healthcare and not-for-profit sectors.
