The 2021-26 Strategic Plan
The 2021-26 Strategic Plan will guide and inform the University’s decision-making for the next five years.
The plan was guided by the Mission of the University as it responds to the challenges confronting higher education at the local, regional, and national levels.
The methodology in establishing this plan was evidence-based and data-driven. Its foundation is an aspirational vision that closely aligns the University’s Mission with its long-range, strategic opportunities in key areas designed to position Holy Family University for the future in a competitive higher education landscape.
Outlined below are the four pillars, as well as a downloadable version of the full strategic plan.
Strategic Plan Preamble
In today’s rapidly changing social world, Holy Family’s mission provides a blueprint for defining and achieving strategic initiatives that will build upon the University’s sound foundation and propel us forward into new areas of teaching, learning, student engagement, and service.
Strategic Vision Statement
Our institutional strategic plan calls us to be the University whose distinct character—a commitment to Family—animates the holistic educational programs we offer and the experiences our students, faculty, staff, and alumni share.
Realize the Culture of Family
At the heart of Holy Family’s mission and vision is our foundational commitment to Family, a commitment to embracing diversity, inclusion, and ensuring an equitable and just learning community and caring for our common home.
Commit to Excellence Through Innovation
Excellence Through Innovation compels us to adopt an innovative approach and mindset to create a distinctive Holy Family University experience.
Engage Beyond Boundaries
This pillar captures our aspiration to do two critical things: expand our scope of influence and attract and retain diverse populations of students, faculty, staff, and trustees.
Strengthen Resources to Fulfill Mission
We must take bold steps forward to retain and develop a strong faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees; diversify and expand income streams beyond revenue generated through tuition; and significantly enhance technology and campus facilities.
