Excellence Canada focuses on five drivers as an Excellence, Innovation and Wellness (EIW) Standard: Leadership, Planning, Customers, People, and Processes. To integrate the EIW Standard university-wide at the Going-for-Gold level, five working groups have been created across campus to address each driver within the EIW Standard.
The Leadership working group
The Leadership driver includes consideration of culture, values, overall direction, governance and the University's legal, ethical, financial and societal obligations. View the Leadership working group members.
The Planning working group
The Planning driver addresses strategic planning and goal-setting across the University, including how plans are monitored, evaluated, reported on, etc. View the Planning working group members.
The Customers working group
The Customers driver examines the University's service to customers (primarily students), including how well we engage with our customers. This includes consideration of listening, acting, and reporting on feedback. View the Customers working group members.
