Academic Plan


Stakeholder Consultation & Engagement

  • The voices and lived-experiences of our key stakeholders helped shape the framework for the Academic Plan. A series of in-depth consultations provided the opportunity to gather a large representation of insights and perspectives from internal and external stakeholder groups.
  • Various consultations took place throughout the process involving students, faculty, staff, administrators, alumni, and industry and community partners.
  • Following these consultations, the Academic Steering Committee identified the main themes and priorities that will be used to produce the final report and plan.

Engaging Our Industry and Community Partners

Industry and Community Think Tank Session

Involving industry leaders in our consultation process ensures that the academic curriculum stays current and relevant to the evolving demands of the job market. As part of the Academic Planning process, the College hosted an Industry and Community Think Tank event to gather insights into challenges, needs, and workforce demands. The feedback from industry partners provided valuable insights crucial to shaping future-ready academic programs that align with evolving industry needs.

The objective of the Think Tank event was to identify growth opportunities and future industry direction. It was a forum to discuss essential skills that students need to be successful in the workplace. Additionally, the event created opportunities to strengthen our collaboration and partnerships with industry and reaffirmed the priorities of our new Academic Plan.
