Strategic Planning and Data-Driven Insights

The Planning and Analysis team's mandate focuses on four key areas: planning, analyzing, driving initiatives and communicating to enable the university to achieve its goals. Through a range of data-driven insights, we enable our stakeholders to make informed decisions about future opportunities, risks and strategies.
