Strategic Agenda 2013–2016 PDF Version
After full and informed consideration of environmental trends, associated strategic challenges, and Cabrini College’s current status relative to Vision 2020, the following five major strategic goals were identified as those most critical for the College to achieve over the next three years in order to place Cabrini on a positive trajectory toward realization of Vision 2020:
Make a distinctive 21st century student leadership learning experience an integral part of a Cabrini education.
Achieve a distinctive Mission-driven reputation for academic excellence, leadership development and a commitment to social justice.
Leverage technology to maximize student learning and increase institutional efficiency and effectiveness.
Increase the College’s financial assets and improve its physical resources.
Be an empowering and inclusive Cabrinian community.
The 2013–2016 Strategic Agenda articulates for the Cabrini College community, partners, and friends an inspirational vision of what we will become that is firmly anchored in who we are, what we do, and the strong values by which we define ourselves.
It reflects an ambitious aspiration for our future, the five key goals we believe we must meet in order to achieve that aspiration, strategies to ensure that these goals are met by informing annual institutional priorities and resource allocation, general funding strategies for the plan, and the indicators we will use to track and celebrate our progress.
The plan does not reflect everything that the Cabrini College community hopes to do between 2013 and 2016.
It also does not represent an unalterable set of directives, since the planning process must be just that, a process—dynamic and adaptable. The work ahead by our community will ensure that the plan is a living document.
It will serve as a framework for making difficult decisions, focusing our resources, living our Mission of “Education of the Heart” and moving us toward the realization of Vision 2020.
Vision 2020 resonates strongly with the campus, from the Board of Trustees to faculty, staff, students, alumni, partners, and friends of the College.
It is a logical extension of our work to ensure that students receive an “Education of the Heart,” especially through the groundbreaking Justice Matters curriculum and a faculty and staff committed to student-centered learning both inside and outside the classroom.
It is also an ambitious challenge for the foreseeable future, to take Cabrini to the next level of excellence in forming leaders committed to a more just society.
Vision 2020 challenges us to prioritize initiatives and investments that will ensure that we become a “first choice” for students, employees, alumni, donors, and employers who share our values and commitments, and a community widely recognized for our success in cultivating leaders committed to creating a more just and humane world
