Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan for Community Engagement


This strategic plan for community engagement emanates from a broadly informed and systematically conducted process that has unfolded over the past two years. The plan represents the expertise, insight, and input of many individuals, including faculty, staff, administrators, and community members.

Highlights of the Strategic Plan: Four Goals

  • Develop and sustain an effective internal infrastructure to support and coordinate academic community engagement among faculty and staff.
  • Harness the university’s resources to improve K-12 education systems and economic development.
  • Enhance student development as engaged learners, researchers, and citizens by fostering community-based opportunities that deepen students’ sense of human solidarity and concern for the common good.
  • Improve ability to share information and efficiently coordinate ND’s activities in the community both internally and externally.
