What is Integrated Planning?
Integrated Planning is a process that brings together university-level and college/unit-specific initiatives, which permits strategic decision-making and provides a synoptic view of resources and commitments. The purpose of integrated planning is to align academic priorities with financial and capital resources in order to ensure the responsible use of all resources. Integrated Planning at the University of Saskatchewan occurs in four-year cycles.
Why do we plan?
Integrated Planning is a way for the campus community to set strategic priorities for the university together and better coordinate the use of resources. The University of Saskatchewan does planning to better show transparency (being open about its work and processes) and accountability in its activities. Prior to adopting Integrated Planning, fragmented planning activities occurred across the U of S, resulting in confusion about the university’s priorities and use of resources.
