Strategic Plan

In the fall of 2014, the St. Francis Xavier University Students’ Union began to develop a three-year strategic plan based on the Students’ Union Strategic Plan that had been created in 2011. This strategic plan is meant to address issues identified in various focus groups, surveys and in discussions with various stakeholders across the St. Francis Xavier University campus.

It is the hope of the Strategic Planning Committee that the goals and objectives outlined in this document will be developed and carried out over the next 3 years by elected and hired student executive teams, representative councillors, and sub executives. The purpose of this document is to provide clear goals that will add significantly to the sustainability, value and importance of the StFX Students’ Union by addressing organizational weaknesses and building on our strong commitment to the students of St. Francis Xavier University, and ensuring that their interest is served by the actions of the SU.

This strategic plan will outline 5 organizational goals to be implemented in both the short term and long term.  Each goal contains a brief summary of purpose as well as action items that target specific areas for improvement, continuity, and organizational growth.

Annual Goals

The following document outlines the goals and direction of the StFX Students’ Union for the 2015-2016 academic year. The Executive team has collaboratively developed this document to ensure vision and measurable accountability to the membership. The Students’ Union Core Values and the Students’ Union Strategic Plan were both key principles to our strategic direction.

It is noted that the post-secondary education environment is one of high volatility, and thus, a proactive, rather than reactive approach is paramount to ensuring the student voice on the StFX University campus is one of great prominence. Further comment and insight from the membership is always welcomed and can be forwarded to StFX Students' Union President Taylor Chase.
