Planning Documents

The three major planning documents that involve the Office of the Provost and Vice- President (Academic) are: the Strategic Plan; Comprehensive Institutional Plan; and Academic Plan.


Strategic Plan

Developed by a cross-institutional committee using a consultative process, the University of Lethbridge Strategic Plan sets the strategic directions for the institution over a five-year period. It encompasses who we are, why we exist, and where we are going. 

Comprehensive Institutional Plan

An Alberta government requirement, the Comprehensive Institutional Plan is a three-year planning document that integrates the institutional business plan, access plan (including programming priorities), and research plan.

Academic Plan

With the University’s Strategic Plan as the framework, the Academic Plan considers the academic activities that will support the U of L’s Strategic Directions and Priorities (which are contained in the Strategic Plan). Guided by the U of L Academic Plan, each academic unit develops its own Unit Academic Plan demonstrating their own actions towards the academic success of the University. In the cyclical process, the Unit Academic Plans augment the next iteration of the U of L Academic Plan. The U of L Academic Plan and the Unit Academic Plans are reviewed and reported on annually.
