Strategic Plan 2012‐2017

Pathways to Our Future.
Since 2008 the iSchool has engaged with its communities in pondering and shaping its future. It has received the
input and recommendations of four external review teams, including a decanal external review team, two visits
from appraisers appointed by the Ontario Council of Graduate Studies, and the Committee on Accreditation of the
American Library Association. The outcomes of those reviews have resulted in reinvigorated and improved Masters
of Museum Studies and PhD programs, the re‐accreditation for seven years of the Master of Information program,
and a renewed emphasis on the iSchool as a research intensive and scholarly focused Faculty at the University of
Toronto.
In addition, there have been many meetings with faculty and students, opportunities for input from alumni and
our external partners, and a number of town hall meetings. The results of those consultations reside in this
Strategic Plan 2012‐2017, a roadmap to our communal future. We thank all those who have contributed to our
deliberations and we make available upon request copies of the review documents mentioned above.
