This strategic plan represents contributions by our students, faculty and staff during one of the most challenging times in our university’s history. As ONE TEAM, we gave our best to one another and those we serve as COVID-19 impacted our world. 

Our efforts, specifically during the past year, led to a new vision — transform health care through innovation and collaboration — setting the direction for our approach to the future. 

Through bold conversations and transparent, engaging work sessions, we created a living document to guide the work of our great university over the next five years under strategic goals to boldly engage all to inspire innovation across our campuses and create an environment that fosters collaboration both inside and outside the university.
