Thursday, August 7, 2014 - 3:00pm

Ontario’s Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) announced it has signed Strategic Mandate Agreements (SMAs) with the province’s 45 publicly funded colleges and universities. These individual agreements focus on particular areas of specialization as outlined in the Ministry’s Differentiation Policy Framework.

OCAD U’s Strategic Mandate Agreement describes the university’s existing strengths and anchors our position as Ontario’s only art, design and digital media institution. It charts the university’s path with the Ministry moving forward over the next three years, supporting its vision, mission and mandate while helping build undergraduate and graduate enrolment growth.

The signed Strategic Mandate Agreement will be available on the MTCU website. OCAD U’s Strategic Mandate Agreement Proposal formed the basis of the signed agreement with the ministry.
