"Propelled by the activities embedded in this plan, Stevens will continue its ascent to become a national and global leader in technology-centric education and research,” said President Nariman Farvardin and Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Jianmin Qu in a joint announcement. "With a renewed focus on enhancing our students’ experience and success and by amplifying our impact through research and innovation, we will elevate the university’s academic reputation and strengthen the connections among our community."

The plan is the result of an intensive and inclusive process led by the Strategic Planning Steering Committee. Committee members collected, evaluated and synthesized hundreds of inputs from many members of the Stevens community.
