The University of Scranton Strategic Plan 2015-2020
In the fall and spring of 2013-2014, the Planning & Institutional Effectiveness Office, with the guidance, endorsement, and insights of the President, President’s Cabinet, and University Planning Committee (UPC), engaged in the development of a draft construct and content for the University’s next strategic plan for 2015-2020. This plan continues in the ambitious spirit of the 2010-2015 strategic plan - Go and Set the World on Fire - which drew to a close in 2015. Following a second full year of development, refinement, and campus-wide review of several drafts, the new plan was approved unanimously and enthusiastically by the University's Board of Trustees on May 8, 2015.
Analysis of strategic issues, challenges, and opportunities have identified a common commitment to the best possible student learning experience, and recognition that it is that experience that has the potential, above all else, to make the University distinctive. Such an experience is one that, furthering our Catholic, Jesuit mission, is Engaged, Integrated, and Global. It is on these three pillars, and in the spirit of our academic mission and vision, that the plan is constructed.
To provide a grounding structure for decision making related to our planning activities, we have also created a set of foundational institutional planning principles. These principles, within the scope of our Catholic, Jesuit mission, articulate our commitment to responsible stewardship of our resources and to continuous improvement, both of which are essential to our ability to create a sustainable environment for the engaged, integrated, and global student experience.
