Strategic Planning Process

The University of Calgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (UCVM) is committed to excellence as an institution, pursuing the vision of bringing innovation and community together to advance animal and human health. UCVM is dedicated to meeting the animal and public health needs of Alberta through its education, research and outreach programs.

UCVM is in the process of creating a new Strategic Plan – a plan that will outline our goals and commitments and set the direction for the faculty for the next five years.

Strategic Planning Progress

Here is a brief overview of our progress since we launched the Strategic Planning Process in November:

  • Nearly 200 people shared their thoughts and opinions about UCVM's future in an online survey
  • Four retreats were held with very robust and engaging discussions about challenges and opportunities facing UCVM
  • The Strategic Planning Steering Committee meets weekly for in-depth discussions
  • Consultations will continue in January through engagement of external stakeholders, UCVM’s Stakeholders Advisory Council, professional bodies, and government agencies

Watch this space for more information and updates as the planning process continues.
