Strategic Plan

OCAD University’s strategic plan, Advancing Excellence at OCAD University for the Age of Imagination, 2012-2017, was approved by its Board of Governors in June 2012 after an extensive planning and consultation process. Advancing Excellence outlines the university's goals and aspirations moving forward, and focuses on four key strategic priorities. These will grow the opportunities for and quality of student experience; the university's recognition as a research and thought leader; its reputation as an art, design and policy leader and community builder; and the enterprise needed to support these ambitions. Dr. Sara Diamond, President, says the plan outlines how OCAD University will "strive to be one of the world's most significant specialized universities in the fields of art, design and media."
