Mission & Vision


To inspire, nurture and educate leaders in tomorrow’s technology-centric environment while contributing to the solution of the most challenging problems of our time.

Vision: STEVENS 2022

During the next decade Stevens will become a premier student-centric technological research university. Stevens will achieve this goal through five key strategic priorities.

  • Student-Centricity. Stevens will place an extraordinary emphasis on fostering the success of its students, their academic and leadership development, career preparation and personal growth. Students will be at the heart of Stevens’ educational and research mission.
  • Excellence in All We Do. Stevens will have an unrelenting commitment to excellence in all
that it does. Excellence will be the standard by which we will judge all our activities, from our educational mission to our research and scholarship, to administrative operations and to our financial stewardship.
  • Through Collaboration, Impact. Building on its agility and collaborative spirit, Stevens will break down internal barriers to collaborative education and research, and will reach out in
a selective and strategic fashion to external collaborators, leveraging our reputation and our enviable location in the New York metropolitan area to maximize the impact of the work of its faculty and students.
  • Technology at our Core. Proud of its legacy and driven by the belief that technology will be a central element in the solution to many of our societal challenges and a key driver for prosperity, Stevens will embrace the power of technology as its differentiator: to offer a distinctive educational experience to its students; to drive its research and scholarship programs; to devise novel teaching and learning methods; and to enhance its administrative, outreach and communication activities.
  • Strengthened Reputation, Increased Prestige. As an institution whose alumni, faculty, and research have made a substantial mark on the world for more than 140 years and whose students will continue to play a critical role in solving society’s technology-based problems
of the 21st century, Stevens will enjoy widespread recognition and a stellar reputation for its impact and accomplishments. Stevens will be widely known as one of the world’s most prestigious technological universities.
