Defining Northwestern’s Future
I am pleased to present the Northwestern University Strategic Plan. This is a plan by and for our community that has been enthusiastically endorsed by the University Board of Trustees. It provides a clear direction for how Northwestern will continue to advance strategically from our current position of strength to even greater national and international prominence.
Rather than a tactical guide, the plan is strategic, laying out in clear terms where we plan to invest our resources and why. We look to you, the members of our community, to turn the plan into action by thinking creatively. It also challenges us to work collaboratively to enhance Northwestern’s position as one of the world’s great private research universities. We have the will to do this, and with this plan and your assistance, we have the way.
