Our Strategic Vision: Next Lives Here
We intend to use this inventive framework to ignite the curiosity of our students, inspire our faculty and staff, and unleash ingenuity to create an inclusive environment that provides freedom to learn, explore, and innovate.
- Academic Excellence: To accelerate student success and graduate impact-driven leaders, we must attract, invest in, and celebrate the people who comprise UC. Through the development of our faculty, staff and students, and the transformative curricular, scholarly, and operational excellence they provide, we are pioneering new ways of thinking, creating, and doing.
- Urban Impact: Urban Impact, through collaborations and partnerships with external counterparts, seeks to improve the human condition and advance sustainability for the institution, city, state, and world.
- Innovation: We are dedicated to pushing limits and challenging minds by providing the space and opportunity for people from diverse backgrounds to connect, imagine, and discover. The formation of new collaborations and partnerships linking UC’s talent in transformative ways—both internally and externally—provides a platform to advance and enrich experiences, ideas, and outcomes.
