President James W. Wagner
This report represents the ambition of Emory University—our vision of what we can become. Now that you’ve read about the path we’ve chosen to get there, you might be thinking: Words are fine, but they don’t mean much without action. And you’d be absolutely right.
Every year we will take a reckoning. We will assess our progress and recalibrate our short-term goals. We’ve identified a number of milestones and benchmarks, some of which are described in these pages. But there are many more, and we invite you to review them for yourself by visiting www.admin.emory.edu/Strategic_Plan/
. This website features the full Strategic Plan, complete with supporting documentation and summaries of the school and unit plans. The plan’s framework will be woven into our annual planning cycle to ensure that we continue moving forward.
Finally, it bears repeating that this is the University’s
plan. It was created through a two-year process of hard work, by nearly 1,000 members of the Emory community, and we all owe them our gratitude. They, along with their thousands of colleagues who make up this great institution, represent our most precious and irreplaceable resource, and Emory will depend on everyone’s energy and hard work in making this plan a reality.
