Western will pursue significant change in key areas to achieve greater impact.
Western is ready to be more and do more. Increasing the impact of our collective efforts will require several kinds of coordinated growth, which must also be deliberate and strategic. To reach our goals, Western’s entire ecosystem must grow as one.
Stimulate our research, scholarship, and creative activity
Western serves individual disciplines and the public good by advancing knowledge and sharing it through traditional and emerging methodologies to meet unforeseen challenges.
Promote teaching and learning for the future
We want to sustain an environment of learning and teaching that celebrates intellectual curiosity and that sets the highest standards of creativity and analytic rigour.
Enrich the student experience
Western graduates are highly sought-after, in part because of exceptional leadership skills they acquire during their time here. These skills are built in classrooms, libraries, studios, and labs, but also through experiential learning, clubs, sports, the arts, and across the whole student experience. We want to sustain this core strength and make it stronger.
