Areas of Focus

The University of Regina is committed to the following 5 Areas of Focus and the specific goals related to each area. Each goal encourages the University community to work together and to break down and challenge conventional divisions between faculty and staff, departments and units, student and instructors, communities and the University. The aim of this Strategic Plan is to inspire bold and unconventional thinking. It is essential that the goals portrayed here respect, honour, and foster the strengths of individual units and faculties such that they are able to set their own goals that engage and align with this plan and, in turn, collectively contribute to the University’s overall success.


Strengthen our connections among students, faculty, and staff.
Where teaching and research come together, daring discovery occurs. Discovery includes the development and dissemination of new knowledge, as well as the personal insights that arise from active learning. An empowering education provides our students with the skills and self-confidence required to navigate the world around them throughout their time at the University of Regina and beyond.

Truth and Reconciliation

Strengthen connections with our past, present, and future.
We are committed to reconciliation through teaching, research, learning, and service efforts across our campuses, and throughout the province. We aspire to walk together in a good way and strengthen our relationships which are based on mutual respect and accountability. This commitment will enhance learning and strengthen relationships by honouring the past, present, and future to create a new shared vision for the next generations.
