Sounds Like a Plan: How the University of Saskatchewan redefined the university plan

Debra Pozega Osburn, Vice President University Relations, University of Saskatchewan

The contemporary university has grown to understand and appreciate the intrinsic value of the strategic plan as an essential tool to provide critical direction for institutional decision-making. Done well, such plans move the university purposefully toward a set of agreed-upon goals. They can guide programming prioritization and resource allocation. They assign metrics and deliverables; they provide a basis for evaluating success. Importantly, if they are built on the sturdy base of a well-understood mission and a shared set of values, they can offer stability in challenging times.

But can a strategic plan launch a new framework for understanding? Open the door to a new way of thinking? Provide an innovative platform for delivering a message? Can it bring the community together in celebration? Can a plan actually be … inspiring?

At the University of Saskatchewan, the answer was yes. Witness the 2025 University Plan: The University the World Needs / ni manachihitoonaan / nikanitan manacihitowinihk

In this session, we’ll explore the benefits and risks of bringing external thinking and cultural concepts more fully into the internal planning process. We’ll review the starting points, the stopping points, and how to know when to change direction. Importantly, we’ll discover how such a plan provides the basis for your branding, campaign priorities, government support, and community outreach – and how it can, as it redefines perceptions and expectations, also build advocacy and support, and generate excitement and good will across the university.

Behind the numbers; findings from the CASE-CCAE Survey of Charitable Giving to Higher Education in Canada

David Bass, Senior Director of Research, CASE
Mark Hazlet, Executive Director CCAE

In 2018 CCAE & CASE conducted a benchmarking survey of charitable giving to higher education in Canada. Forty-eight universities, colleges and polytechnics from across Canada participated. This session will share key findings and takeaways from the survey. Analyses of the data has been informed by insights from CCAE’s board, the survey advisory group, and data from similar CASE surveys conducted by CASE in the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand.

Now is the time, to learn about the data and what it means for you, Canadian Advancement and the road ahead.

Objectives:
  • Explore ways insights from this survey can inform advancement strategy and decision making
  • Identify the unique strengths, challenges, and opportunities of your fundraising programs relative to peer institutions
  • Share feedback and suggestions for ways to enhance the value of the survey going forward
