The accomplishments of Forward Thinking, the university's current strategic plan, have created a solid foundation for the future. But, like all of higher education, Case Western Reserve University will face complex issues that create challenges and uncertainty—as well as opportunities—in the coming years. Navigating these challenges over the next five years and beyond will require a new boldness, an integrated culture and a disciplined focus. Case Western Reserve must embrace a set of priorities that will sustain it as a premier, urban, comprehensive research university. We invite you to help shape our future by reading the strategic plan and providing your feedback.
