The University of Cincinnati will kick off the implementation of its new strategic direction at its Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 20, in Annie Laws Drawing Room in the Teachers/Dyer Complex.  President Neville Pinto will make a presentation to launch the 10-year vision that he and the university have been developing over the past eight months. The meeting begins at 8:30 a.m.

In the months leading up to the launch, President Pinto met with nearly a dozen stakeholder groups and held four open input sessions campus wide in an accelerated, inclusive and unifying process that creates a new paradigm for higher education planning. “Change itself is changing, becoming faster. Our new strategic direction reflects and embraces that reality,” said Pinto. “Our university must be a pacesetter, and we must graduate students who can create the future.”

UC’s new strategic direction lays out a vision that will lead UC as a public urban university into a new era of innovation and impact. It creates a nimble and agile framework to create a university culture of innovation to redefine learning as well as break boundaries in problem-based scholarship and research, health, and community-based partnerships, both locally and globally.

The university will continue to develop the strategic direction in the coming months. It identifies three major platforms: Academic Excellence, Urban Impact and Innovation Agenda. The strategic direction website will continue to provide updates.
