Introduction

Developed collaboratively by the Titan Family, this strategic plan presents a thoughtful yet ambitious roadmap for addressing our most compelling opportunities and enhancing our most successful endeavors. The plan is wholly in support of our educational mission, reaffirms our position as a first-choice institution, celebrates our far-reaching impact as a university of significance, and further empowers all Titans — faculty, staff, students, and alumni — to Reach Higher. With this plan, we collectively commit ourselves to its goals and objectives, all in pursuit of our fundamental mission.
