The College of Natural Science (NatSci) has produced a new strategic plan that articulates a shared vision and direction for the college.
The plan is a co-created, consensus document developed by the NatSci community over the past two years to identify strategic priorities and metrics that provide a roadmap for the college over the next five years (2022-2026). It focuses on identifying overarching needs, orchestrating joint efforts, and unifying innovations toward our mission to used discovery, innovation, and our collective ingenuity to advance knowledge across the natural sciences
There are two documents that make up NatSci’s strategic plan package:
This plan is a forward facing, living document that builds on existing strengths and develops new opportunities in a student-focused academic environment characterized by low barriers and a historic willingness to collaborate and cooperate in education, research, and service. In addition to pursuing academic and research excellence, we are committed to creating a safe, equitable, and supportive environment in which differences are valued and all members of the NatSci community are empowered to grow and succeed.
It is our hope that this plan will spark the vision, insight, and innovation necessary to successfully address current and future challenges, and to excel in this rapidly changing world. Taking action on our strategy will help us accomplish our mission and move toward the world we envision – a thriving planet and healthy communities through scientific discovery.
