We are committed to transparency, accountability and public disclosure

In accordance with Algoma University’s commitment to transparency, accountability and public disclosure, this section of the website provides stakeholders and the community at large with access to the key documents and reports that we use as planning tools and as barometers of our success.

Academic Plan

At its June 3, 2016 meeting the Algoma University Senate approved a five-year rolling Academic Plan (2016-2021) that lays out the foundations that undergird the development of Algoma University’s programming in all areas. This plan will guide new program development and careful review of programming already in place. The purpose of this document is to provide an update of the previous Five-Year Academic Plan (2010-2015) which was approved by Senate in March 2010.  Specifically, the updates will focus on providing the current status of academic programs as well as program development. Divisional priorities with their associated timelines will also be introduced as a new but important component of the plan. Should you like to view the 2006-2011 Academic Plan, it’s available here.

The Academic Planning Committee of Senate makes annual recommendations to Senate for program renewal, and the Strategic Plan has largely been built around these recommendations.
