Strategic Planning

The Strategic Integrated Plan lays out the vision, goals and strategic actions for Carleton@75 over the next five years from 2013 to 2018. The Strategic Integrated Plan sets the context for all other planning at Carleton. It provides a high-level framework for long-term decision making across the institution and defines a vision and a high-level set of goals, in the form of strategic directions, for all faculty, staff, and administration.

On August 7, 2014 the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) published the Strategic Mandate Agreements that have been signed with each university and college in Ontario. SMAs are extremely important as they provide the institutional framework for the allocation of graduate spaces, the approval of new academic programs, the allocation of capital resources, and ultimately the establishment of a new funding framework for universities and colleges. Our SMA will allow us to develop our undergraduate and graduate programs over the coming years in accordance with our Strategic Integrated Plan (SIP).

The Provost is the Chair of the Strategic Integrated Planning Committee (SIPC). This committee provides oversight of implementation of the SIP goals and establishes goals and plans for the coming year with measurable milestones. It provides direction on priorities for new space and engages in discussion on identifying and deliberating the “wicked problems” challenging Carleton University.
