  2. Prepare students to be innovative, problem-solving critical thinkers who reflect the love and hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their careers, churches, homes, and communities.
  3. Expand degrees and programs that connect real-world learning opportunities to transformative, flexible classroom experiences on a contemporary, sustainable campus.
  4. Foster a culture of care, collaboration, and trust that supports a healthy, passionate, and connected community of Christian higher education professionals.

Innovate for Student and Graduate Success

Redeemer will prepare students to be innovative, collaborative, problem-solving critical thinkers. These skills will enable them to follow their callings into all areas of life where they will seek to serve Jesus Christ for the sake of His world, in their careers, communities, churches and homes. In a rapidly changing, complex, digital world, Redeemer graduates must be ready intellectually, spiritually, socially, and technologically to fill the opportunities of the marketplace and meet the needs of an increasingly virtual society.

Key Strategy3

Invest in Contemporary, Sustainable Facilities

Welcoming more students into a relevant university education that prepares tomorrow’s Christian leaders requires a flexible, contemporary campus with smart facilities. As Redeemer grows, changes to the campus master plan envision a relational academic community that is walkable, bike-friendly and has a thriving centre that includes inviting indoor and outdoor gathering spaces. In an ever-evolving Canadian higher education context, God calls us to be wise stewards. Planning for financial and environmental sustainability are therefore of critical importance to the long-term health and viability of the university’s academic mission.

Key Strategy4

Foster a Healthy Workplace Culture

People are the lifeblood of an institution and a Christian workplace should be an example of one of the best, most rewarding places to work. A healthy community that nourishes and develops individuals is vital for success — particularly in a period of renewal and growth. The community must be equipped to thrive on and off campus, digitally and face to face. Intentional effort into building such a workplace culture will position Redeemer’s faculty and staff to flourish and engage creatively and energetically in the mission of Christian university education.
