FOCUS 2015 is our refreshed strategic plan that builds on and strengthens Georgian's commitments. We recently surpassed the half-way mark of our five-year strategic plan, creating an ideal opportunity to evaluate and reaffirm our priorities. This plan is an important roadmap for our future. Not only does it outline where we need to be, but how we are going to get there. Integral to the plan remains strong community, industry and international partnerships. Georgian's ongoing success will be based on these partnerships – and the success of our students and graduates will rest with our ability to provide relevant and innovative programs that meet their needs and the needs of employers. Four key priorities will guide our work over the next two years: pathways, extraordinary experiences, community connections and operational excellence. We will continue to advance student access, grow pathways through our University Partnership Centre, expand our own degree offerings, champion service and work-integrated learning, and leverage technology across our seven campus locations. We have also renewed our commitment to entrepreneurship and innovation. Our goal is to produce a new kind of graduate, one who is not just a job seeker, but a job creator. We know we can achieve this by expanding Georgian's suite of applied learning experiences, creating more relevant and flexible pathways that are responsive to community and employer needs, honing our approach to student services and student success, and infusing the principles of entrepreneurship into each of our programs. We have already begun to integrate those principles into our own operations by taking a close look at where we can be more efficient and effective. EXCELLENCE This is an exciting time at Georgian College, with more growth and opportunities than ever before. With the implementation of Focus 2015, I am confident Georgian will remain a leader in postsecondary education – continuing to inspire and transform the communities we serve.
