Strategic Plan 2023-28

Expanding Horizons

People are at the heart of what we do. As we look to the future, we set our sights on deepening, broadening, and enriching our community. We will grow the many ways to engage with our School, by expanding access to our career training programs, community education classes, and public programming. We will enhance the student experience, by investing in new opportunities that aid their journeys. And we will strengthen our faculty and staff, by providing strategic support that furthers our mission.
