The Strategic Planning Committee finalized our long-awaited strategic plan, Stewarding Social Betterment and Environmental Sustainability, in 2021. Almost a year in the making, this document will guide the O’Neill School over the next five years as we continue to pursue excellence in our work.
Our goal was to examine where we are as a school and where we want to go through 2027, as we lean into the changing face of higher education, a changing workplace, and changing demands for our students—ensuring that we have robust roadmap to remain a top school. A separate implementation plan will be developed early in 2022 to help us make day to day changes to achieve the plan goals over the next five years.
The final strategic plan includes five key pillars that will support the initiatives of our faculty, staff, and students alike. These five areas—comprising research, education, diversity, community, and investment—are the waypoints we’ll use as we enter the school’s sixth decade.
