Below are links to the task force reports commissioned by the Strategic Planning Steering Committee and developed by 110 members of the Brandeis community. Of the eleven reports commissioned, nine are included. (The Financial and Development Task Forces are still at work.)

Each task force report proposes a long-range vision for its topic area as well as a set of possible specific initiatives that bring the larger aspiration to life. The long-range visions are most directly reflected in the preliminary framework. The specific initiatives will continue to inform the development of the strategic plan and its implementation.

A tremendous depth of thought, imagination, and creativity went into these task force reports. If you would like to share any comments, please do that by sending an email to
