Saskatchewan Polytechnic launches new strategic plan
Saskatchewan Polytechnic launches new strategic plan to guide the polytechnic’s direction over the next five years
August 26, 2020 – Situated on Treaty 4 and Treaty 6 territories, and Homeland of the Métis people, Saskatchewan Polytechnic launched a bold, new strategic plan today: Leading the Rise: Bringing polytechnic education to new heights. This strategic plan builds on Sask Polytech’s strengths and successes and will guide the institution’s direction over the next five years.
“Sask Polytech’s new strategic plan is built on a commitment to ensure our learners receive the education and hands-on learning opportunities they require to succeed in their careers, in their communities and in their lives,” says Dr. Larry Rosia, president and CEO. “We know that by empowering learners to realize their career goals throughout their learning journey, a journey that will last a lifetime, we can create a better Saskatchewan and a better world.”
The foundation of this strategic plan is based on the Cree phrase, miyo wahkohtowin, which expresses the value and positivity of interconnectedness and good relationships. This principle will guide every interaction, institutional practice, procedure, policy and service Sask Polytech provides to learners, faculty, staff, alumni and our communities.
The strategic plan includes a new aspirational mission and vision statement for the institution. “Now is Sask Polytech’s opportunity, and challenge, to turn this vision and plan for the future into an exciting new reality,” says Dr. Rosia. “As we look forward to the next five years, applied education has never been more critical to our collective success, at home and around the world.”
Leading the Rise is all about the future. Sask Polytech will meet the needs of our stakeholders through our innovative, integrated approach to applied learning and research, led by the differentiators that set us apart:
- Employer-driven and learner focused,
- Career-ready, applied education,
- Flexible learning,
- Enhanced learner experience, and
- Globally recognized programs.
“This new strategic plan would not have been possible without the input and engagement of our faculty, staff, students, alumni and stakeholders,” says Dr. Rosia. “Thank you to our community for attending town halls, submitting surveys and sharing your insights into our great institution over the past year. This is your strategic plan. Thank you for joining us on this journey.”
It has been five years since Saskatchewan Polytechnic has released its last strategic plan. To learn more about Leading the Rise: Bringing polytechnic education to new heights please visit saskpolytech.ca/rise.
