The Beginning

President Franco Vaccarino kicked off the University of Guelph’s strategic renewal process at the 13th annual community breakfast on September 9, 2015.

It has been 20 years since U of G updated its strategic vision.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to review where we see ourselves now, what we think the University of Guelph stands for, and how to chart our path into the future,” he said.

The president said the process will engage people from on and off campus. He invited members of the community to join discussions to take place over the next 10 to 12 months.

“This process will help us reclaim and assert essential traditions and long-standing areas of strength, while integrating them with new and emerging themes,” he said.

“We want to develop a concise document clearly stating our strategic vision to guide our planning over the next five to 10 years. In addition, we want to renew our sense of institutional pride and confidence among the campus community and U of G partners.”

More information will be made available in the coming weeks.
