First section of Strategic Research Plan unveiled
Part one of the draft Strategic Research Plan (SRP), ‘Guiding and Supporting the Research Enterprise,’ will be presented and discussed at a town hall meeting on Tuesday, February 7.
This section of the SRP provides a background to the rich history of scholarly and research achievements at Queen’s, and describes the guiding principles and objectives of the plan. “Guiding and Supporting the Research Enterprise” identifies the support mechanisms, structures and resources required to facilitate Queen’s continued success. It also provides the context for metrics and measures that would be used in assessing progress and successes.
“The SRP is a component of broader integrated planning and represents a subset of an overarching Academic Plan. This section of the plan is a result of extensive consultations with the Research Community Committee and various stakeholders,” says Vice-Principal (Research) Steven Liss. “We believe it is important the broader university community offers its input to ensure ‘Guiding and Supporting the Research Enterprise’ is thorough and comprehensive.”
Queen’s community members can offer their feedback during a discussion period at the town hall or on the SRP blog. Dr. Liss will consider the comments as he finalizes part one of the plan.
Part two of the plan describes the thematic focus, research strengths and emerging areas of emphasis. A draft of that section will be released in the coming weeks for review by the Research Community Committee, deans and associate deans and other members of the research community. The section will be revised and presented at a subsequent town hall.
