ASAP 2012: Achieving Strategic Academic Priorities is the formal statement of McGill University’s academic plan that built on the successes and addresses remaining gaps identified by Strengths and Aspirations, the 2006 strategic plan. The new plan, which was endorsed by Senate on October 17, 2012, and by the Board of Governors on 1 February 2013, was designed to strengthen what had been accomplished by responding to the economic, political, social and technological changes of the period preceding its introduction. It has provided the framework for continuous improvement to sustain and advance McGill’s role as a leader among the world’s universities. ASAP 2012 ensured that McGill had well-defined, strategic academic priorities to drive the multi-year, multi-fund resource allocations and related processes during the period 2012 to 2017.
As we approach the end of the ASAP period, we have prepared a summary report based on the input of senior leaders across the University (including heads of academic and non-academic units) that highlights its achievements during the period 2012 to 2017.
