Vancouver, BC – Langara College is pleased to announce a new Strategic Plan that will guide the growth and development of our community through to 2020. The Strategic Plan sets out a vision of a modern institution that sustains itself by delivering exceptional, market-relevant programming for Langara students.
The Plan highlights Langara’s core purpose, mandate, and values: excellence, collegiality, innovation, and integrity. As a pathways college, Langara provides students with academic and experiential foundations leading to further education, professional and personal development, and career success.
“This plan is the result of significant input from the Langara community,” said Kwin Grauer, Chair, Langara Board of Governors. “It will continue to guide the College as we realize our vision as a leading provider of high quality and accessible education.”
The Strategic Plan builds on four vision categories: Organizational Sustainability; People and Culture; Communities; and Relevant, Innovative, and High-Quality Programming. It further complements the 2014-2019 Academic Plan, which provides focus and direction for the College’s academic endeavours.
“This new plan sets out the path we will take together towards our common goal of making Langara Canada's pathways college,” added Langara President Lane Trotter. “It builds on the Academic Plan, towards a vision of a modern institution that offers innovative programming, puts our students and employees at the heart of our efforts, while increasing engagement with the various communities we serve.”
