Academic Plan 2022-26

Learning in Action

RRC Polytech’s Academic Plan, Learning in Action, outlines the priorities and informs decision-making by enhancing recruitment, retention, and work-integrated learning strategies, expanding program delivery to meet the needs of students, ensuring our curriculum is inclusive and creating an environment where everyone feels seen and heard.

This plan was informed by and aligns with our Strategic Plan and will guide our academic activities over the next five years.
