Strategic Themes

Four key strategic themes emerged from our research, through ongoing conversations with stakeholders, and by placing the SPCS plan into conversation with the University plan.

These themes permeate our goals and provide a loose framework by which we measure the applicability and success of our initiatives.

  • Focus: Clarify and strengthen the SPCS programs, identity and brand.
  • Innovation: Explore, create, and evaluate new educational opportunities for degree programs, professional education and lifelong learning.
  • Integration: Create strong synergies within SPCS and across the University community.
  • Community Engagement: Partner intentionally across the greater Richmond community to forge new relationships and to enhance existing ones.
