UFV updates Education Plan and launches new SEM plan

October 15, 2014

The University of the Fraser Valley has updated its UFV Education Plan 2011–2015 and unveiled a new Strategic Enrolment Management Plan, both intended to guide UFV’s program planning and enrolment efforts for the next few years. The update to the Education Plan reflects the new expectations of the BC government as outlined in the BC Skills for Jobs Blueprint, which ties funding to provincial and regional labour market needs. UFV has identified 3 program areas for future development: health and wellness, agriculture and the environment, and digital media technologies. The newly created Strategic Enrolment Management Plan is the institution’s first, and sets out 9 enrolment goals for the future, including increasing student retention after first year; increasing upper-year transfer opportunities; and offering more experiential learning opportunities to students. Much of the SEM plan focuses on supporting current students to ensure timely graduation and future employment. UFV News
