Strategic Plan 2017–2021

Emily Carr’s last strategic plan was a four-year plan covering priorities, goals, and activities from 2017 to 2021. The plan looked at eight commitments to maintain our core strengths and develop our emerging and potential strengths.

Each commitment articulates a priority for the university, has a series of attainable goals, and addresses the actions already underway in achieving each goal. These commitments included the following areas

  • Research
  • Student agency
  • Outreach + community
  • Indigeneity
  • Graduate programming
  • Teaching + learning
  • Infrastructure
  • Lifelong learning

We thank the ECU community for their tireless efforts in helping to reach our institutional benchmarks amidst a campus relocation and the COVID-19 pandemic. The upcoming strategic plan will build upon these commitments as we create a responsive and authentic plan that speaks to our current needs and priorities.
