Power the Future. Empower the Mind. 

SES Strategic Plan Cover DOWNLOAD In 2013, Stevens unveiled its strategic plan for the entire university, The Future. Ours To Create. Strategic Plan for Stevens 2022. As Stevens’ flagship school, the Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering and Science saw the necessity of aligning itself with the overall university vision and demonstrating a spirit of collaboration through commitment to a common purpose.

In order to continue its legacy of leadership and leading edge research, and contribute to Stevens’ goal of becoming a first-tier research university, the SES community collaboratively identified five areas of strategic opportunity to further develop through 2023.

  • Education and training of undergraduate and graduate students
  • Research, scholarship and infrastructure
  • Faculty investment and development
  • Innovation and entrepreneurship
  • Culture, governance and reputation building

Within these five domain areas are a defined set of goals revolving around our existing core strengths as well as newly developing opportunities, which will direct the Schaefer school’s progress over the course of the next five years and shape a new foundation for its future.

The SES 2018-2023 strategic plan entitled Power the Future. Empower the Mind. outlines the strategy behind how SES will increase collaboration, enhance its reputation, foster a spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship, continuously strengthen the quality of its faculty and students; and build its research, scholarship and infrastructure over the course of the next five years and beyond.
