Wilfrid Laurier University’s Integrated Planning and Resource Management (IPRM) process is designed to answer the question, “How will we continue to make Laurier a better institution?”
IPRM builds on the foundations developed through the Visioning Laurier exercise, the Academic Plan and the Campus Master Plan to ultimately identify the academic and administrative priorities of the university and determine how to operationalize and fund these priorities – within our existing resources – to position Laurier for future success.
Message from Laurier President and Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Max Blouw:
The Board of Governors on Feb. 26 passed motions approving the Integrated Planning and Resource Management (IPRM) report recommendations which identify Laurier’s academic and administrative priorities and a new resource allocation model for the university. The IPRM report was endorsed by Senate Jan. 12.
I would like to thank all members of the Laurier community for highly engaged involvement, interest, and discussion around IPRM. The decision by our Board of Governors is the culmination of a strong collegial effort by the faculty, staff and students on the IPRM working groups and by our wider community.
The Board decision followed an extensive and vigorous discussion within the university community. It is because we have engaged in this level of dialogue that I am confident that we have identified sound and strategic recommendations necessary for our university to succeed.
I recognize that this decision means change for our community, and change is not easy.
In approving the IPRM report, the Board has provided strategic direction. The recommendations specific to individual program areas will be addressed through the university’s regular decision-making bodies and procedures involving Senate, Board of Governors and budget processes.
We will share information about timing and next steps as it becomes available.
