Creating a better future
On May 1st, 2015, the College of Engineering celebrated the adoption of Creating a better future — A strategic plan for the Oregon State University College of Engineering 2015-2020. This plan now serves as a map that will guide us toward our destination.
The college’s strategic plan is guided by the vision to create a better future. It is anchored in the mission to transform lives and enhance society through impactful education and research. The plan is framed around four strategic goals:
- Become a recognized model as an inclusive and collaborative community.
- Provide a transformational educational experience that produces graduates who drive change throughout their lives.
- Lead research and innovation to drive breakthroughs that change the world.
- Establish the College of Engineering as the partner of choice for industry, government, and academia.
Implementation and tracking
The college has developed a five-year implementation framework to deliver the strategic plan's outcomes guided by "performance goals" and a dashboard. The dashboard represents a set of high-level metrics that correspond to each performance goal to track, measure, and report progress. Through "adaptive implementation," we will evaluate our progress annually and revise our goals or timelines as situations change.
