Curiosity Sparks Discovery

A bold new direction for the Faculty of Science: Our strategic plan for 2017-2022.

Catalyzing Canada's transformation to a vibrant and sustainable future

The Faculty of Science has been catalyzing change and inspiring discovery, creativity, and innovation for over 50 years.

Our strategic plan outlines a bold direction for us. It integrates current and emerging strengths with areas targeted for future growth and investment.

In our plan, we illustrate how we will fuel transformational change and build a strong community through teaching, learning, research, scholarship, and collaborative partnerships.

Science addresses many of the biggest challenges we face in society, and we are excited to help create solutions.
