We accomplish this mission by:

Empowering student learning through broad and deep interaction with the liberal arts and sciences, professional studies and cutting-edge research;
Applying innovative pedagogies to advanced teaching and learning;
Building the knowledge and skills essential for personal transformation, professional success and advancing the common good;

2. cultivating a hub for creativity, career creation and entrepreneurship;
3. and increasing opportunities for engaged and integrated learning, thus preparing students to be innovative leaders and responsible global citizens.

Strategically increase Enrollment and External Funding to:
1. grow the region's college-educated population;
2. support the ability of students to participate in higher education;
3. develop relevant new programs;
4. and extend our reputation for excellence in research and undergraduate, graduate and professional education.

Achieve Metropolitan Impact by:
1. focusing the university's attention and expertise on the opportunities and challenges of the metropolitan region;
2. establishing a national reputation as a campus that contributes to the larger community and educates students to recognize and appreciate differences across social and cultural boundaries, thereby thriving in and contributing to an increasingly diverse world.
