"Each year UConn is hitting a new high in its academic excellence, creativity, research, global engagement, partnerships, and entrepreneurial activities. With the support of our state government, communities, and industry, we will continue to keep our students at the center of who we are and prepare them not just for good jobs, but also for leadership roles in addressing societal challenges."

Envisioning 2034

The University of Connecticut is embarking on a strategic planning process. The outcome will be a new operating model for the university, one that is led by a culture of sustainability, both financial and otherwise.

It will be an inflexion point in the University's history, one in which we started looking internally for solutions to critical problems, those facing both the university and society at large.

The process will be iterative and continual as we grow and adapt to the world around us.

Strategic Planning is being Co-Chaired by Provost and Executive Vice President Anne D'Alleva and Vice President for Research, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Pamir Alpay, and supported by a Steering Committee and a number of Working Groups to ensure we uncover and recognize areas of opportunity and bring them to their full potential.

But most importantly, the process is driven by students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members. Visit our strategic planning website to learn more about the process and to get involved.

I am excited about the journey and the incredible outcomes it will create for our community.
