Auburn University 2019-2024 Strategic Plan

Inspire. Innovate. Transform.

Auburn University is committed to providing exceptional instruction, outreach, and research that translates the intellectual capital of our University into unique solutions that impact the world. In recent years, Auburn has gained considerable momentum — including record student enrollments, impressive retention and graduation rates, competitive program rankings, transformational research and scholarly advancements, and unprecedented levels of donor support — that continues to inspire our work and fuels our continuing drive for innovation.

Building on our university’s reputation and accomplishments, we have an extraordinary opportunity to shape our institutional priorities for the coming years and to focus our energies on the most pressing issues that we are best positioned to address. With a vision to lead and shape the future of higher education, we are guided by a new strategic plan that presents a framework for our mission and vision, and articulates six pivotal goals that are critical to Auburn’s future.
