The 2023-2028 College of Engineering Strategic Plan charts a clear path forward for the college.  Formed over the course of a one-year period, from December 2021 to December 2022, the plan integrates feedback from more than 1,600 stakeholders including students, faculty, staff, alumni and industry partners. A 15-person strategic planning committee of faculty, staff and students reviewed all the feedback and used it to create the impactful plan we see today. This strategic plan integrates our focus on diversity, equity and inclusion into our mission, vision and goals. You will see that we have reaffirmed our enduring commitment to providing an exceptional Learn by Doing, hands-on education, and added a focus on creativity, innovation, sustainability and making a positive impact on society. Moving forward, this strategic plan will inform where the college focuses time and resources over the next five years and I look forward to seeing what we will collaboratively accomplish.
