What should UFV look like in 2025? Join the conversation on Wed, Jan 21
Come join the discussion to help shape the future of UFV. Everyone is welcome.
What should UFV look like in 2025? What does learning look like in 2025? What does the student look like in 2025? What is the structure of a university in 2025? What does a faculty member look like in 2025? What role will technology play? What are the five goals that UFV must achieve from 2016-20 to set ourselves up for 2025?
According to countless authorities and commentators, higher education has entered a historical moment of profound disruption. Due to a technological advancement—the internet—universities have lost both the monopoly of knowledge and the monopoly of credentialing. Many argue that in order to survive, universities must undergo a profound reformation. This change may affect virtually every aspect of university life and structure. The spatial and temporal organization of universities and the nature, locations, recognition, and assessment of learning will be very different in the next decades than they are now.
The survival and success of the University of the Fraser Valley depend on how well we prepare for and position ourselves for the future. UFV is launching a collective and long-term visioning exercise focused on the very nature and organization of universities. For UFV’s Education Plan 2016-20, the Provost has struck a visioning committee with the purpose of imagining and articulating UFV’s place within a general vision of higher education’s future, specifically in the year 2025. Through a variety of consultation mechanisms, all areas and individuals of the institution will have the opportunity and are encouraged to participate in developing this vision and plan over the coming year.
You are invited to participate in developing the UFV 2025 vision, and Education Plan 2016-2020 through online forums, town hall meetings, charrettes and more. In addition to involving students, faculty, staff, alumni and donors, this discussion is open to community members, stakeholders and industry who will be encouraged to participate. The draft Education Plan is expected for Fall 2015 and will be submitted to the Academic Planning and Priorities Committee, Senate and the Board of Governors in early 2016.
