Our Future

We're building a different kind of school with a different kind of graduate, and we are changing the way people think about colleges.We have long been committed to providing innovative pathways for students, including being the model for collaboration between colleges and universities. Through our expanding partnerships, we are creating more options for students to achieve their educational and career ambitions. That includes continuing to grow our program mix with more degrees and graduate certificates focused in our clusters of expertise, providing access to relevant credentials for students and graduates from SMART and other institutions.Our world needs leaders who make a difference at work and in the community.By providing inspired learning, innovative opportunities and great student experiences, our graduates will be those leaders.

Our Strategic Objectives

Great teaching and learning:

Building on our record of academic excellence and the innovations in teaching and learning underway across SMART, we will expand cross-disciplinary learning in all programs, strengthen networks among students, faculty, staff and external partners, expand the core literacies that all students must master, reflect a diverse and international perspective in our programs, give all our students experiential learning opportunities and offer flexible delivery options in every program. We are building a bold, exciting and contemporary approach to teaching and learning.

Great student experiences:

Creating great student experiences means providing enriching learning experiences inside and outside the classroom. It means delivering great services and supports our students need, when and how they need them. Creating great SMART experiences also means celebrating the achievements of our students, alumni, faculty and staff – and creating an environment that makes our students proud to have chosen SMART and our employees proud to work here..

Great foundations:

A different kind of school with a different kind of graduate is supported by great faculty and staff, processes and physical infrastructure. It means our employees work in a progressive, respectful environment infused by an inspiring culture. It means our processes are robust enough to meet our current needs and support what we imagine we can do tomorrow. It means creating opportunities to innovate and improve within the College and around the world by working in partnership. And it means ensuring that everything we do is about quality – for our students, for our employees and for our many stakeholders.

The Future of SMART

SMART faces a challenging fiscal environment with dynamic student, employee and stakeholder needs. Our strategic objectives and priorities for the next five years are designed within the context of those realities. Our plan is the result of extensive consultation with students and employees across SMART's campuses, as well as with partners and community members. This consultation process included a college-wide survey, multiple town hall meetings and one-on-one interviews, an environmental scan and many discussions at the Board of Governors. We also reviewed the results of other surveys conducted in the past two years at SMART, such as the Employee Engagement Survey and the Student Recruitment and Support Project. Our campus master planning process reached out to our local communities to engage them in a dialogue about SMART's current and future role. We spoke to municipal and regional representatives and to our donors and alumni. We sat down with thought leaders, industry partners and members of our Program Advisory Committees to understand how SMART can be a different kind of school with a different kind of graduate. Our objectives are directly linked to SMART's business and operational planning processes through which detailed timelines, accountabilities and metrics will be assigned to each priority.
