Community Engagement Process

Following our recent unit review, the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research (FGSR) is excited launch our Community Engagement Process. This process has three overall objectives:

1) Engage stakeholders in developing a vision for FGSR over the next five years
2) Ensure that FGSR is responsive to student, faculty, and community needs
3) Inform an institutional strategy for graduate education

All of our many types of stakeholders and stakeholder groups are central to shaping our strategic direction for the next several years. We encourage everyone with an interest in the delivery of graduate education at the University of Regina to participate.

We had 27 participants at our four open meetings that were held between Feb. 26 and Mar. 4. While numbers were small, the range perspectives and insights provided was extremely helpful. Thank you to all who participated. 

More ways to participate remain. We encourage you to choose as many as suit your needs.
