Next year marks the mid-point of the University of Waterloo’s Sixth Decade Plan. We have enjoyed many accomplishments since this plan was introduced five years ago but much has changed, both here and around the world. These changes bring new challenges and opportunities that require the attention and input of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni as we review our plan for the next five years.
Your input to this mid-cycle review is critical as we consider the ambitious goals set out in 2006, reflect on our accomplishments, realign our plan, and introduce an accountability framework with action plans and progress outcomes. Our work will be built on our foundational pillars: academic excellence, research excellence and impact, co-operative education, graduate studies, internationalization, and entrepreneurship.
I invite you to dedicate 1.5 hours of your day on Friday, November 18, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. in the Village 1 Great Hall for this important conversation. For background information, please visit the Mid-cycle Review website and review both the Sixth Decade Plan and the 10 Priorities for 2011/12.
