Strategic Planning

UNB is in the final stage of its strategic planning process.

Over the course of the process, more than 2,000 people submitted feedback on the strategic plan through direct consultation with the Strategic Planning Steering Committee, community conversation sessions held on both campuses and the strategic plan survey. The final strategic vision, UNB Toward 2030, has been informed by this feedback and will be available to the community in late February.
