Strategic Plan

Inspiring dreams. Revealing passion. Changing lives.

The 2016 to 2021 Yukon College Strategic Plan will support our transition to university, anticipated between 2019 and 2021. Rather than initiating the year-long consultation which drove our previous 2013-2016 plan, we conducted email survey in 2016 (173 responses), querying possible revisions and updates to the previous plan. This survey affirmed that the previous plan required only minor revisions to take us through to 2021.


    Yukon College is a leader in education, rooted in our diverse cultures and northern environment, where everyone is inspired to dream, learn and achieve.


      Grounded in northern expertise and strong partnerships, we will build a healthy and prosperous north through unique, relevant and inclusive education and research.
