The Strategic Plan 2017–2022
The University of Richmond provides an extraordinary education. In the kind of teaching, mentoring, research and scholarship, and co-curricular and engagement opportunities that we offer, Richmond exemplifies the transformative power of education — in our students’ lives and in the difference they can make in the lives of others. As stewards of the University of Richmond at this moment in our institutional history, we have a weighty obligation to future generations of Richmond students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The development of a new strategic plan offers an opportunity to build on the University’s momentum as we imagine its future.
Under the guidance of a Steering Committee appointed by President Crutcher, the strategic planning process invites individuals from across our community to help affirm our mission, articulate our values, and develop a shared vision for the University around important themes that will inform our priorities in the years to come. Working Groups will develop ambitious goals and initiatives that will help us achieve our shared aspirations for the University’s future. At each significant juncture in the strategic planning process, the University community will be asked to provide input, and our planning process will be strengthened by the active participation of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and parents. At the conclusion of this highly participatory process, the strategic plan will be presented to the University community in spring 2017 for review and endorsement, with implementation beginning in the fall of 2017.
