The current Faculty of Mathematics strategic plan is nearing its end and Dean of Mathematics, Stephen Watt, has initiated a broadly consultative, data-informed process to develop the next strategic plan for the Faculty of Mathematics.
Development of the strategic plan will be guided by the Mathematics Strategic Planning Committee, informed by input from our internal and external community members and by information about the Faculty and our current context. Community members are invited to provide input through our strategic plan consultation opportunities. For information on building our strategic plan, please read through our background information document (PDF).
The plan will align with the Faculty’s mission and values and will seek to move the Faculty forward in its vision to be a world leader in mathematics, statistics, and computer science.
Process and Timelines
For more detailed information about the planning process, please contact Martha Foulds, Director of Planning.
