UAlberta strategic plan shows intent to grow enrolment by 35% in next decade


In its recently unveiled 10-year strategic plan, the University of Alberta has shared that it intends to grow enrolment by 35% over the next decade. This would see the university’s student body grow by 14,000 students to 60,000 in total, with the majority of this growth expected to stem from domestic students. “We want to be there for young Albertans to provide them with all of the opportunity they seek [“¦] so that they can go forward in their careers and in their lives and stay in Alberta,” said UAlberta President Bill Flanagan. UAlberta student union president Christian Fotang told that students hope that the quality of education and services are maintained with this substantial growth: “We have to make sure that the services and support are there for [the students].”
