Accountability

The University of Guelph has a long-standing history of, and on-going, commitment to accountability and public disclosure. Accountability for public resources is the cornerstone of the public trust relationship. We take great pride in demonstrating the effective and efficient stewardship of the resources entrusted to us to deliver quality and excellence in our teaching and learning, research, and service missions.

At Guelph, accountability is demonstrated through action and recorded through a plethora of publications, reports and public documents ranging from student surveys to audited financial statements to planning documents. This site, which will evolve over time, serves as an information portal - a focal point for these instruments.
