The 2021-2026 Strategic Plan is built on a tradition of intellectual, academic and community pursuits. Our keen awareness of the importance of diversity is reflected throughout the Faculty, and notably includes longstanding community partnerships with numerous marginalized groups. Our commitment to a legacy of learning relies on a strong core faculty as well as loyal alumni and Faculty supporters. The governing framework that we have developed provides direction for planning, programming and implementation of policies, strategies and new initiatives across the Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences.
