Think Beyond the Possible—The Next Five Years

"Think Beyond the Possible" builds on the ambitions and achievements of the university's previous strategic plan, "Forward THINKING", which spanned 2008-2013.  We have made significant progress in many areas such as internationalization and diversity.  The new plan recommits us to the core values of the previous plan and defines a roadmap for our future that focuses on ----
