University of Lethbridge seeks input in creating new comprehensive strategic plan

The development of a new comprehensive strategic plan for the University of Lethbridge is underway and the University is asking the broader southern Alberta community to provide input and insight into this important project.

The economic, social and cultural connections between ULethbridge and southern Alberta are deep and meaningful and have great influence on the health and well-being of our region. Because of this interconnectivity, the community’s priorities are key to guiding the University’s priorities.

“The new Comprehensive Strategic Plan will address the changing landscape of post-secondary education provincially, nationally and globally, and respond to the evolving opportunities and challenges for the University of Lethbridge,” says ULethbridge President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Digvir Jayas.

“Our goal is to create a shared vision for the University, and it’s essential for community members to add their voices to the conversation.”

To connect with the community, ULethbridge will be part of the City of Lethbridge’s Community Conversation on Thursday, April 25, from 3 to 7 p.m. at the ENMAX Centre.

Jayas says ULethbridge representatives are excited to participate in the Community Conversations event and are looking forward to the opportunity to connect with community members to hear experiences, feedback and ideas.

“ULethbridge was founded by citizens,” Jayas says. “Community members have helped shape what the University is today and have an important perspective to share to help shape our future.”

Admission and parking for the Community Conversation event are free of charge. In addition to this in-person event, an online survey is also available for all students, employees and the broader University community to share their thoughts about the future of the University.
