Strategic Plan

Inclusion • Innovation • Collaboration


Transforming health sciences education, research and university partnerships is not an easy undertaking. This University Strategic Plan serves as the framework for achieving this aspiration. While the details of our five-year plan will be complex, it has been organized around four strategic goals, all of which are designed to be true levers for the needed changes across our University. It is not intended to be static, but rather a living document responding to emerging challenges and opportunities.

Naturally, these strategic goals build upon our efforts to educate our students as the center of everything we do. To that end, the successful execution of this Strategic Plan and evolution of our University will depend on the collective efforts of the entire NEOMED community. This spirit of unity and cooperation will help us meet the challenges and opportunities of the rapidly changing worlds of education, research, health care and the economic environment.

This plan is structured so that within each goal a strategic initiative will be led by a champion who will have the responsibility, authority, and accountability for assembling a team; outlining a process for evaluation; conducting the analysis; identifying the risks and required resources, determining the feasibility of the initiative and moving it forward. Measurable objectives will be established for each initiative to monitor progress. The colleges and administrative divisions will support the University Strategic Plan by developing and implementing their specific strategic plans. All resource allocations will be linked to the University Strategic Plan with success indicators reviewed regularly.

NEOMED’s horizon is changing dramatically. The measures of academic success are evolving, and new partners are strengthening the institution in unimaginable ways. We are limited only by our imagination, commitment, and, most significantly, resources. Please join to help make these strategic goals into new horizons for Northeast Ohio Medical University.
