Be accountable for our decisions and actions to ensure our long-term viability, reduce our environmental impact and foster a healthy and dynamic college.  Our long-term viability, reduce our environmental impact and foster a healthy and dynamic college.

The need to respond to complex external pressures has inspired St. Lawrence College to adopt a long-term strategic planning approach to sustainability. As a publically funded post-secondary institution, St. Lawrence College must embrace new provincial government accountability directions as well as ongoing regulatory compliance, planning and forecasting requirements. We also face financial challenges including government grant reductions, reduced dependency on tuition income, competitive markets, and wage and benefit pressures. We are experiencing rapid technology changes, increased energy costs, environmental impacts, and the effects of globalization.

Today, sustainability is more important than ever before. For us, sustainability means addressing governance, social, economic and environmental factors. We believe that reducing our environmental footprint and fostering an engaged and inclusive student population make long-term economic sense. We see great opportunity in our people and our facilities.

To remain competitive and relevant as an institution, we need to be proactive and ready to adapt with intention and focus. We require integrated planning and decision-making processes that align with ministry directions. By taking a holistic approach to decision-making that considers all aspects of our college, we will continue to be prepared for the uncertainties ahead.

Strategic Directions will be achieved as a result of pursuing multi-year and annual initiatives. Find out more about our Multi-Year Objectives.
