Trent Oshawa approves 2013-17 strategic plan

April 29, 2013

Last Friday, Trent University’s board of governors approved in principle the Trent Oshawa Strategic and Business Plan for 2013-17. The goal for Trent Oshawa moving forward is to offer an unparalleled education, grounded in the social sciences and humanities, in the Durham region and eastern GTA. 7 areas of development are set out in the plan, covering academic programming, the student experience, enhanced campus identity and profile, and governance. The plan aims at both increasing the number of student applicants who make Trent Oshawa their first choice, and improving student retention by enhancing the quality of the learning experience. New programming in high-demand areas, such as social work and interdisciplinary offerings, is a key component of the plan. The plan also calls for building on the relationship Trent has with Durham College and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, and developing new partnerships and complementary program delivery.
