Dear UM community,


We are very excited to share with you that on February 27, 2024, the Board of Governors approved MOMENTUM: Leading Change Together, University of Manitoba Strategic Plan, 2024-2029. This is a university plan informed by our community.


We appreciate the engagement, support, and energy you have invested in sharing your ideas and aspirations over the past year and we look forward to working with you to achieve our goals over the next five years.


As we enter this new and exciting phase at UM, we invite you to join us on Thursday, April 4, 2024, at 10:00 a.m. for a special event that celebrates the UM community and how, together, we will move forward to make impactful change on the world around us.


Celebrations will begin with brief opening remarks and a short presentation on the new strategic plan and the goals we have set out to achieve. Following this, you are welcome to stay and connect with each other over light refreshments, and:


  • Enjoy interactive stations showcasing UM’s community and innovative research and teaching.
  • Contribute to a new community art installation.
  • Embrace your inner bison with a limited-edition bison t-shirt (first 200 guests).

While all faculty, staff, and students are welcome, we appreciate not everyone will be able to attend. A recording of the speaking portion of the program will be available online following the celebration.


Please RSVP today and join us to continue the conversation and learn more about where our momentum is taking us next.


Doors open at 9:30 a.m. Please email rsvp@umanitoba.ca with any questions about the event.


We look forward to seeing you there.
