The Ohio State University at Newark


Strategic Plan 2017-2023

Strategic Priorities

To sustain our focus on improving student success over the duration of this strategic plan, we have established four strategic priorities. Each priority includes a set of objectives, and each objective includes at least one initiative. The priorities, objectives and initiatives will guide our annual financial plan and our annual inclusive excellence plan. The initiatives are not exhaustive or complete. As we develop each annual financial plan and inclusive excellence plan, we may consider new or alternative initiatives that align with our strategic priorities. Thus, we will be flexible in implementing the plan. Our initiatives are also high-level and general, giving us room to fill in the details as we implement the plan.
