In 2016/17, UNBC began implementing the Integrated University Planning Framework for setting strategic priorities and linking all planning and budgeting activities across the university. This Framework presents opportunities for collaboration, supports strategic decision-making, and ensures our efforts and resources align with the strategic, academic and research priorities. It brings UNBC’s vision to life and focuses our strategies and initiatives on addressing the challenges and opportunities of globalization.

The Integrated University Planning Framework builds upon the strength of our faculty and staff, confirms our commitment as a student-centred and research-intensive university, and sets out a path for us to realize our vision and mission
