SUDBURY – On Monday, November 17, Cambrian College hosts the official launch of its strategic planning process.
The strategic plan will provide a clear path for Cambrian for the next five years as it reaches, and passes, its 50th anniversary. To ensure that the strategic planning process is built upon a collective voice, the College is doing something different – reaching out to all members of the community and providing everyone an opportunity for feedback on and input into the plan.
To date, feedback has been gathered from more than 1,000 Cambrian students, staff, alumni, industry partners and community members.
“It is an important time for the College,” says Cambrian College President Bill Best. “Like many other members of the Cambrian and Sudbury communities, I’m really proud to be part of a bold and ambitious strategic planning process that will result in a collective vision for our future.
“Cambrian has never attempted anything like this before,” Best continues. “The fact that we’re aiming to engage everyone is a testament to our desire to build strong connections with our community and be a world leader in changing the future of postsecondary education.”
Cambrian staff, visitors to the College, and those in the community who would like to share their opinions about the future of postsecondary education, are welcome to attend. The day of the launch, anyone wearing Cambrian apparel on campus has the chance to win a prize. To encourage participation and add a spirit of fun, there will be a ball pit in the main entrance and a Plinko board in the Student Centre.
Everyone can join the conversation at any time by using the hashtag #futurecambrian on social media. The strategic planning website, www.futurecambrian.ca
, is designed to facilitate discussion and will be launched on Monday.
When: Monday, November 17 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: Cambrian College Barrydowne Campus
