UOIT’s Strategic Mandate Agreement
August 7, 2014
The Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities has published on its website the Strategic Mandate Agreements (SMA) from all Ontario universities and colleges. These agreements were confidential until the government completed its assessment.
SMAs were negotiated over the past year with each university and college in Ontario. Each SMA covers a three-year period (2014 to 2017) and is based on Ontario's Differentiation Policy Framework for Postsecondary Education. The University of Ontario Institute of Technology's (UOIT) SMA defines the areas in which the university excels. The SMA also demonstrates how UOIT contributes to students, research, innovation, the needs of employers, and the economy of the eastern Greater Toronto Area. This process also provides a framework for how UOIT will evolve over the short term.
