Strategic planning update

For the past year and a half, our UNB community has come together to build a vision of the university we believe we can be. It has been a great pleasure to join that process.

Throughout my time here, I have been inspired by your drive and your passion. From our conversations together, it has become clear to me I am not alone in knowing that our future can hold great things if we have the courage to go after them. UNB has an important role to play in our cities, our province, our nation and the world – today and in the future. This Strategic Vision positions us to grab that potential and turn it into reality.

I want to extend my sincere thanks to Dr. George MacLean and the Steering Committee for their exceptional work guiding us through a process that has been marked by consultation and transparency. Most of all, I want to thank you for engaging in the process and ensuring that this Strategic Vision is one we can all call our own.

The Strategic Vision will be presented to Senates and the Board of Governors for approval this month. After that, the real work begins. I look forward to starting this bold new path with you.
