ASAP 2012 has been drafted in order to clarify the centrality of an academic strategic plan as the reference for other University plans at all levels, and ensure that all strategic plans are developed in conjunction with the academic plan, and that each incorporates the impact of its decisions into all other plans.
The Broad Goals, Cross-cutting Themes, and Major Strategic Objectives of this strategic academic plan are addressed through three over-arching strategic priorities:
- Advancing McGill’s academic success, profile, and reputation for excellence, nationally and internationally, as one of the world’s leading research-intensive universities.
- Achieving a sustained student-centred focus that will enhance the educational, research, and extracurricular life and learning experiences of those studying here at all levels.
- Managing existing resources and diversifying and optimising revenue sources to ensure maximal impact in support of educational programs, research activities, and community engagement.
