Strategic Planning

During the 2017/18 academic year, we have embarked on the development of a new Strategic Plan for the Faculty of Education for the next five years.

Below you will find details of the times, dates and locations of face-to-face consultation meetings, which were scheduled by group to maximize the quality of participation. Both forms of consultation were designed to seek your input and to generate ideas and thoughts that will identify and inform a set of shared values and objectives for our work going forward.

First Survey (now closed)

Following these two phases, the Faculty’s Executive met on two occasions (May 11 and June 1) to review and consider the report from the consultations.  Further consultation was done at the Okanagan School of Education in August. From your combined contributions through these efforts, a draft vision statement, mission statement, and set of strategic goals and values have been drafted.

We are happy to share the first draft of the strategic plan with the broader Faculty community, and with it, we would like to offer faculty and staff members an opportunity to provide feedback in person and online. For the online component we have prepared a short and simple survey. In the survey we are asking you to indicate the extent to which you are in support of various components of the draft plan. We appreciate your time to provide your feedback on the strategic plan.

Please click the following link to see the survey: Survey Link. We request that you please complete it by October 4, 2018.

A copy of the draft plan and the report of the findings from the first round of the consultation process are available for you to review here: Strategic Planning Documents. Please note this is a password protected page, the password was circulated to faculty and staff via your UBC email address. You may also contact the Communications Office at for the password.

Further opportunities to provide feedback in person at open houses will be offered this fall. Your responses to this survey will aid in our planning of those open house sessions. Additionally, you are welcomed to send clear and concise comments as feedback to this email: Thank you for your participation in this important planning process for our Faculty. We greatly value your input and feedback.
