Queen's presents town-and-gown strategic plan to Kingston

February 2, 2011

Queen's University has presented to Kingston city council a new plan outlining the future direction of university-city relations. The key areas of common concern that emerged from planning sessions are quality of life, community planning, student engagement, and economic development. Working groups in each of these areas will develop priorities and timelines for plans of action, such as engaging and retaining talented students and employees, integrating student and community philanthropic activities, and building an increased awareness for student citizenship. Supporting performance indicators and targets will be used to measure success as the plan progresses. Queen's News Centre
