Strategic Thinking

Universities need to think strategically to guide their decision-making, anticipate challenges, and maximize opportunities.

Over an 18-month interval, Emory focused on identifying priorities for its next strategic plan. This process of Thinking + Acting Strategically led to an Academic Strategic Plan aimed at building on Emory's current strengths and advancing our excellence.

The plan consists of four pillars that will advance and involve all of Emory. These are:

  • Strengthening Academic Excellence
  • Deeper Engagement with Atlanta
  • Global Health Innovation
  • Leveraging the Woodruff Health Sciences Center

During the Fall 2017 semester, academic leaders from across Emory are working to finalize the specific goals of the plan. The Office of the Provost will develop metrics so that we can track progress towards these goals.

More information on the four pillars can be found at the Office of the President's website.
