Strategic Plan 2012–2017

A different kind of school. A different kind of graduate.

At a time of rapid social, economic, political and technological change, Seneca is at the forefront of providing student-focused teaching and learning that is redefining how people think about postsecondary education.

The proof is in what we do. Our programs are increasingly in demand, always evolving to meet market needs. Our emphasis on core literacies — including critical thinking, problem-solving, communications, collaboration and leadership — prepares students for success and a lifetime of learning.

Most important, the proof is in our graduates. Equipped with a Seneca education, they are engaged citizens, ready for today’s careers and tomorrow’s opportunities.

Supporting our teaching and learning environment is an unwavering commitment to quality in everything we do to support our students in their educational journey. We are proud of our faculty and staff, who are committed to continually improving the quality of the student experience inside and outside the classroom. We are equally focused on quality in building and enhancing the relationships that are at the centre of our local and global networks with our industry, community and education partners.

We are dedicated to providing our students with great opportunities no matter what path they choose after graduating. Across all the credentials we offer, we are building more comprehensive internal and external pathways to new and enriching opportunities in a career or further education.

We begin the implementation of our new strategic plan recognizing that the accelerating pace of change around the world and in our own backyard demands a constant evolution in what we do and how we do it. We start from an excellent foundation, and this strategic plan is about building an even stronger Seneca focused resolutely on providing the best possible experience for our students.
