"We've been hard at work since February, meeting with close to 1,500 people internal and external to the university, and reviewing over 4,000 responses to two separate surveys," said visioning committee co-chair, Liz Harrison. "Based on the information collected through consultation, and reviewing several institutional documents, the committee has started to put pen to paper to attempt to capture the essence of what we are hearing and reading."

To help define the vision, mission and values of the University of Saskatchewan, President Peter Stoicheff appointed a cross-campus committee to lead the work.

The committee, with representation from faculty, staff, students, the Board of Governors, University Senate and University Council, is consulting with members of the campus community with the aim of preparing a draft document by June.

HenryTye Glazebrook sat down with committee co-chairs Brent Cotter, professor in the College of Law, and Liz Harrison, associate dean of physical therapy and rehabilitation sciences in the College of Medicine, to find out what the project entails and what it means for the campus as a whole.

There are many reasons why this is an institutional priority, said U of S President Peter Stoicheff, not least of which are the numerous changes that have happened at the university over the past 22 years.
