The updated vision, launched in the 50th Anniversary year of the University, will continue to provide the platform from which the university can leverage its momentum and aspirations. The University continues to serve as a beacon for change, for elevating excellence, and for building a strong community around a shared future vision to be recognized as a top 5 research university in Canada, with a strong focus on student experience, campus culture and entrepreneurial thinking.
