The university's roadmap, "The Pathway to the Future: NC State's 2011-2020 Strategic Plan," lays out important goals and the strategies to reach them.

Three-Year Update

Since the approval of our strategic plan in 2011, NC State has been hard at work putting that plan into action. Three years on, our momentum has never been stronger, and we’ve made tremendous progress toward meeting our goals.

Strategic Planning

Chancellor Randy Woodson initiated the formation of a new strategic plan for the university in 2010 by charging the provost and chair of the faculty with directing the process with advice from an 11-member steering committee. Nine task forces comprised of faculty, staff and students produced white papers with recommendations for university strategies, specific initiatives and metrics. The resulting document, “The Pathway to the Future: NC State’s 2011-2020 Strategic Plan,” was endorsed by the Board of Trustees in April 2011 and will guide the university’s vision and decision-making through the end of the decade. New information will be added to this site as work progresses on achieving the strategic plan goals.

“The Pathway to the Future: NC State’s 2011-2020 Strategic Plan” is the framework that guides university administrators in long- and short-term planning and decision-making. It has five overarching goals: enhance the success of students through educational innovation; enhance scholarship and research by investing in faculty and infrastructure; enhance interdisciplinary scholarship to address the grand challenges of society; enhance organizational excellence by creating a culture of constant improvement; and enhance local and global engagement through focused strategic partnerships.
