February 21, 2012

Following a year-long, widespread community consultation process, Simon Fraser University launched Monday its new strategic vision, which seeks to establish the institution as Canada's most community-engaged research university. The new vision states that SFU will aim "to be the leading engaged university defined by its dynamic integration of innovative education, cutting-edge research, and far-reaching community engagement." The university commits to engaging students by equipping them with the knowledge, research skills, and experiences to prepare them for life in an ever-changing and challenging world; engaging research to become a world leader in knowledge mobilization; and engaging communities to every way possible to contribute to their social, economic, environmental, and cultural well-being.
