In May, 1996, President Lajeunesse called for a "visioning" process for Ryerson to answer the question: what is our collective vision of what Ryerson's academic landscape should look like five years hence? The goal of the task group was to articulate a broadly based vision of the University's academic landscape by recommending strategic directions and paths of development that the university would follow. The task group also worked to identify practical short term steps to be taken to set Ryerson on course for the achievement of that vision and to recommend broad academic priorities.

The Vision Task Group consisted of one chair appointed by the president, four appointees of the Board of Governors, six appointees of Academic Council, and three appointees of the Executive Group.
