Stevens 10-year Strategic Plan External Version Now Available

Stevens 10-year Strategic Plan External Version Now Available

March 22, 2013

To the Stevens Community:

I am pleased to announce that the Stevens 10-year Strategic Plan, The Future. Ours to Create., has been professionally produced and hard copies will be disseminated within the next two weeks.  As you know, this process is the culmination of more than a year of self-analysis by more than 300 members of the extended Stevens community—faculty, staff, administration, alumni, Trustees, and students—to chart a bold course for our university in the 21st century.  The production of this external version of the Strategic Plan has been underway since the fall.  I am hopeful that this document will convey the essence of our Strategic Plan and the significant upward trajectory of our university to key audiences.

Printed copies of this external version of the Strategic Plan will be distributed to a variety of important stakeholders including Presidents, Provosts, and Deans of more than 300 universities throughout the U.S., as well as key contacts and opinion leaders in industry, government, philanthropic organizations, and research agencies.  We will also send targeted emails and a link to the electronic version of the Strategic Plan to all alumni and targeted other constituencies.  In addition, an advertisement in the April issue of the American Society of Engineering Education publication, Prism, will also feature our Strategic Plan.  I encourage all members of our community to review the document at, and to share it with your peers, partners, and collaborators.
You may recall that an internal version of the Strategic Plan was also produced last fall. This version captures the detailed plans, targets, and benchmarks that the Strategic Planning Committee articulated to guide and monitor our progress.  This version of the plan is available to members of the community through a password-protected site.
I wanted to give you, the contributors to the Plan who will play a crucial role in its implementation, a first look at the external version that will be shared broadly in the next few weeks.
Per aspera ad astra,
