Charting a Course for the Next Five Years and Beyond

Fulfilling the Promise

In 2011, led by Provost Steve Goldstein ’78, the Brandeis University community began a rich and robust exploration of the issues and opportunities facing Brandeis and all of higher education. 

This highly engaged experience culminated with the adoption of Fulfilling the Promise: The Brandeis University Strategic Plan, which will enable Brandeis to meet the challenges proactively and ensure that our already fine university is stronger and even more competitive in the future. 

Our planning and development process, which included students, staff, faculty, alumni and the Board of Trustees, will serve as the model for our strategic plan implementation and assessment. 

In keeping with their promise of transforming “excellence to greatness” made to all of the planning participants, President Frederick Lawrence and Provost Goldstein commit to realizing our shared vision for the future of Brandeis through actionable initiatives that will begin to take shape in the 2013-2014 academic year.
