University Administrative Council

Ontario Tech University was built on a foundation of good planning. The outstanding accomplishments of the university community over the past decade reflect the contribution of past and present faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends. The significant contributions of public- and private-sector partners have also been instrumental to the success of our university.

This is an exciting time for the university. It's important that we take stock of our programs, services, organizational structures and processes in anticipation of further growth and development as the university plans for the future. Recognizing the need for a new approach to resource allocation, the decision was made to begin the process of developing an Integrated Planning Framework. As a result, the University Administrative Council (UAC) was established and charged with developing an integrated plan for the university. This will help to ensure we are successful and well prepared to meet our future goals.

The integrated plan will be developed, implemented and evaluated in a transparent manner with involvement from faculty and staff. The plan will link the university's enrolment, financial and expansion plans into a strategy that will take the university into its next decade.

Expected results of the plan include:

  • Better linkages among enrolment, financial resources and campus space.
  • Strategic direction that leads to easier budgeting.
  • A greater emphasis on student needs and student experience, enrolment, and financial and campus space planning.

This co-ordinated plan will further build the university and a culture of constant improvement while focusing on making the best university for our students. It will also demonstrate to our students, all levels of government and our research partners that the university is a strong steward of its resources and a place in which to invest and conduct research.
