    News Releases

    ​Grenfell Campus is reporting on progress during year one of its strategic plan. 

    In 2020, Grenfell Campus released a comprehensive strategic plan titled Committed to Communities that is guiding the campus through the next five years. The plan is the result of extensive consultation and provides an overview of priorities for the campus’s growth and progress. 

    Throughout the strategic plan, several themes were identified. The update reports the successes of the year and looks ahead to what is next for Grenfell Campus as it continues to develop and refine its goals, objectives and key targets.

    “No one could have imagined that we would be working to implement the first year of our strategic plan during a global pandemic,” said Dr. Jeff Keshen, vice-president (Grenfell Campus). “Yet, despite the challenges presented, I’m happy to report on significant progress in all areas of our plan. 

    “Organized around nine distinct themes, this update outlines the impacts we have already achieved and highlights the work left to do in the coming years. We are excited to see what the next years bring as efforts will continue to implement the outcomes of the plan. “

    This report on Committing to Communities summarizes the progress made on achieving the goals and priorities set out in the original plan. It provides a broad overview of the major highlights and insights into the many ways in which students, staff and faculty of Grenfell Campus have collaborated to advance its collective priorities.

    Some of the major highlights include: 
    Significant increase in post-graduate program offerings
    Welcoming of Bonne Bay Marine Station and Public Aquarium to Grenfell Campus
    Increased on-line course offerings
