Strategic Plan


When Dean Chapman arrived in 2016, CSAHS began building a strategic plan that would orient the direction of the College for future growth and vitality.

The strategic vision emerged with a focus on three key goals:

  1. To be a leader in disciplinary, interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary, and engaged teaching and research that contributes to meaningful change in our communities and our world.
  2. To make visible and compelling the quality, value and societal impact of our teaching, research, and engagement for prospective and current students, the University of Guelph community, alumni, and the general public.
  3. To provide a healthy, productive, and diverse work and learning environment that fosters the ability of students, staff, faculty, and alumni to thrive and succeed.

This plan is ambitious, challenging, and insightful. It puts theory into action, pushing our programs and scholarly work beyond the confines of disciplinary boundaries, delivering a richer and fuller experience for our learners.
