Strategic Plan for Graduate Education

UA's Strategic Plan for Graduate Education articulates campus-wide goals that will guide initiatives and investments across campus, to expand and strengthen graduate education.

The five-year Strategic Plan (2022-2026) was created by a joint committee of Graduate Council representatives, Faculty Senate representatives, and members nominated by college deans. They outlined goals and strategies that will guide both the Graduate School and academic units in aligning graduate education to UA’s ambitious goals as a Carnegie R1 (Doctoral: Very High Research Activity) institution.
