YukonU invites public input for next strategic plan

WHITEHORSE, YT—The Yukon University Board of Governors is inviting public input into its priorities as the University continues its evolution over the next few years.

“Our strategic plan guides all that we do. We are keen to hear what Yukoners would like to see as part of our vision for the next five years—what do people want from the Yukon University of 2026?” said David Morrison, board chair.

The board has contracted Yukon-based Strategic Moves to gather input from the public as well as the University community, partners and other stakeholders and support the creation of a five-year YukonU Strategic Plan.

From today until March 5, people are encouraged to submit feedback via an online survey available at yukonu.ca/StrategicPlan/.

Morrison highlighted some of the University’s accomplishments under the current strategic plan:

  • Expanded research opportunities for students and First Nations;

  • Recognized as a national leader in Reconciliation and Indigenization;

  • Closer relationships with communities, First Nations and industry leading to unique community- and land-based programs;

  • Online application and registration;

  • Two new degree programs; and

  • Becoming Canada’s first university north of 60

“It’s incredibly rewarding to look at what we’ve achieved these past four years,” said Morrison. “All of this started with the input we received from Yukoners last time around.”

The board anticipates unveiling the YukonU 2021-26 Strategic Plan in the fall.
