Strategic plan

In 2012, CAPI worked with a steering committee on a new five-year Strategic Plan for the Centre.

We identified a new vision, mandate and values for the Centre that reflects our strengths and commitment to supporting the goals of the university, particularly in the area of internationalization. The focus of our mandate is consistent with the four key areas of the UVic strategic plan, A Vision for the Future – Building on Strength: People, Quality, Community and Resources.

Our four primary goals are:

  • To create and maintain connections between the UVic community and the Asia-Pacific region.
  • To create and provide research programs and learning opportunities of such quality as to ensure CAPI’s leadership among Asia-Pacific research centres in North America.
  • To recruit, retain and support talented faculty, students and staff at the Centre, supporting them to achieve their highest potential.
  • To access external funding to increase our programming and thus to increase the benefit to the university and the wider community. 

Our sincere thanks to go our steering committee, which was made up of the following colleagues from across the UVic community: James Anglin, Paul Bramadat, Howard Brunt, Philip Dearden, Zoumin Dong, Peter Keller, Michael Miller, Jon Muzio, Jeremy Webber, Peter Wild and Feng Xu.
