Our mandate

Learn about our reason for being, and the guidelines under which we operate. 

The expectations we live up to

The University of Calgary is expected to achieve focused outcomes that support and encourage engagement, economic, social, and cultural prosperity, and are valuable to all Albertans.

Each spring, the University of Calgary updates and submits its Comprehensive Institutional Plan (CIP), a three-year, integrated planning document that satisfies legislated requirements described within the Post-Secondary Learning Act and the Fiscal Planning and Transparency Act.

Each fall, the university reports on that plan with an Annual Report to Government, which includes our financial statements.

We also supplement these formal submissions with a Community Report that showcases the progress we've made over the course of the previous year.
