FAU PROFILE: Strategic Planning

In January 2006, Florida Atlantic University's Board of Trustees approved the 2006-2013 Strategic Plan. The period covered by this plan will see the University pass the half-century mark of service as an outstanding center of higher education, research and community engagement. The plan was developed over an 18-month period under the direction of the Board of Trustees. To aid in the plan’s development, a task force was created that included representation from a broad cross-section of the FAU community. With the pursuit of excellence as its guiding principle, the plan is organized around the following institutional goals:

  • Goal 1: Providing Increased Access to Higher Education

  • Goal 2: Meeting Statewide Professional and Workforce Needs

  • Goal 3: Building World-Class Academic Programs and Research Capacity

  • Goal 4: Meeting Community Needs and Fulfilling Unique Institutional Responsibilities

  • Goal 5: Building a State-of-the-Art Information Technology Environment

  • Goal 6: Enhancing the Physical Environment

  • Goal 7: Increasing the University’s Visibility

The plan addresses each of these critically important areas in detail, laying out specific objectives, the timeframes in which they are to be completed, the individuals responsible for their accomplishment and their budgetary requirements. To ensure that all aspects of the plan remain on track and that timely adjustments are made to this work in progress, the University has created the post of Vice President for Strategic Planning.
