Major Initiatives

Finance and Resources

Integrated Services Renewal

Excellent universities require administrative services that are aligned to support and facilitate their mission. At USask, we have created the Integrated Services Renewal (ISR) Program to effectively leverage our processes, data, people, and technology as we look to the future. We want to determine how to most efficiently support the university’s interconnected needs for student, finance, human resources, procurement, and other services.

Leadership Development

The University of Saskatchewan has an institutional leadership development framework, Greystone Leadership, which is intended to be the foundation for all people leader development across campus. This promotes a consistent experience for people leaders, while allowing for a tailored program based on the needs and goals of the audience. 

IT Security

The University of Saskatchewan is introducing new IT security standards that will be applied to university computers. These new standards are being put in place to help reduce the risk of cyber attacks and protect the information of the institution and members of the university community.


People and Resources and the Teaching, Learning and Student Experience (TLSE) portfolio recognize the importance of working together to shift the university towards a more comprehensive, integrated and sustainable approach to wellness by creating a system to draw together expertise from colleges and units across the university to support a healthy campus environment.

Procurement Strategy for Indigenous Businesses

USask is committed to a future where the university's direct business relationships with Indigenous suppliers are representative of the Indigenous population in Saskatchewan.

Shared Service

Shared Services is about improving administrative services, especially in ways that will support the university community in achieving teaching and research goals.

Facilities Reimagined

We have redefined how Facilities serves the campus community, and have moved from a function-oriented structure to one that improves responsiveness, heightens accountability, and supports a collaborative, service-oriented culture that is flexible in supporting the needs of colleges and units.

Relationship Management

The relationship management function has been developed to enable deep customer knowledge and drive tailored solutions for customer needs.
