Strategic Plan 2018

Developed through a broadly consultative and reflective process, the Faculty of Mathematics Strategic Plan articulates the Faculty’s priorities, provides a context for decision-making, and describes our path forward at a high level.

From the foundation provided by the Faculty mission, vision and values, the plan aims to move the Faculty forward in pursuit of its vision to be a world leader in mathematics, statistics, and computer science. The plan focuses on five key priorities:

  • People
  • Undergraduate Studies
  • Graduate Studies
  • Research, Creativity, and Innovation
  • Outreach

Built on the perspectives, insights, and advice of engaged stakeholders and trusted advisors, this plan positions the Faculty to overcome challenges and to seize opportunities in pursuit of our shared vision.
