Project steering committee

Development of the Partnerships Hub has been guided by its Steering Committee. The Committee takes an active role in building out the Hub framework by providing advice, problem-solving key challenges and advocating for a model that makes it easier to develop and nurture partnerships.

It brings together the expertise and resources of the Advancement and Alumni Engagement, Communications & Marketing, Community Engagement, Government Relations, International, Research and Technology Licensing teams. With a strong focus on collaboration, the Committee ensures that different perspectives are heard, enables information sharing and takes a common sense approach to its work.

The Hub’s governance structure, including its advisory committees, will be further developed as the initiative begins to scale. Stay tuned for more information this fall.
