Purpose

The Faculty of Nursing at the University of Calgary recognizes the importance of engaging student leaders and academic staff in the establishment of an institutional environment that clearly values and supports teaching and learning and embraces the scholarship of discovery involving research and the application of research related to teaching and learning.

The Eyes High strategic direction for the University of Calgary emphasizes that the university will provide expert instruction, engage students fully and apply the same research and knowledge translation that we undertake in all research areas to create an exemplary teaching environment in a research university. Our faculty’s strategic plan (2012-2016) aligns with these objectives and implemented, in early 2012, the academic administrative Teaching and Learning Portfolio.
