Strategic Plan

Defining Our Future

At the University of Louisville, our greatest days are ahead of us.

Whether you are alumni, elected officials, employers, donors or citizens of the commonwealth, we challenge you to step up and invest in us. We welcome you. We need you.

Our Strategic Plan

In fall 2018, President Neeli Bendapudi announced that the university would begin the process of developing a strategic plan to guide its actions in becoming a great place to learn, to work and in which to invest.

We are now taking recommendations from faculty, staff and students, and building on the university’s mission, vision and values.

This nine-month process will be inclusive, open and transparent, incorporating input from people like you: our alumni, donors and friends.

In fall 2019, the plan will be shared with everyone.
