Administrative Services Renewal Initiative

The University of Saskatchewan (USask) is focused on a future of excellence—to be a university that sets the standard in learning, teaching, research, scholarly and artistic work, and community engagement. Through pan-institutional changes to our administrative environment, we are applying best practices in co-designing and delivering services that are integrated, consistent, and aligned to support our mission.  

What is Administrative Services Renewal?

Guided by the University Plan 2025, and specifically Commitment #2: Boundless Collaboration, the Administrative Services Renewal (ASR) Initiative is focused on co-designing an enhanced administrative operating framework that aligns our people, operational structures, and resources. This important work is a continuation of USask's efforts over the past decade to strengthen and integrate service design and delivery from an end-to-end user-based perspective.

By taking a “One University” approach, we can modernize our administrative environment to deliver high-quality and consistent administrative services, while focusing the maximum amount of the university’s resources and energies on our core mission.
