We develop practice-ready engineers and computer scientists, solve complex transdisciplinary problems, and drive economic development - both locally and globally - through innovative and engaging teaching, groundbreaking research, and socially conscious service within a culturally rich, intellectually open, and intentionally inclusive environment.
We will be recognized as leaders in solving global problems and driving economic development.
The College expects respectful, cooperative, constructive, inclusive, and fair interactions among its faculty, staff, and students as they advance the College’s research, instruction, and service missions.
We will strategically invest in key areas of strength and leverage these strengths to shape national and global research priorities.
Key Progress Measure: Increase total and cross-college research expenditures by 50%.
Key Progress Measures: Implement the Space and Facilities Strategic Plan and utilize a return-on-investment model to guide key decision-making.
Objective 3: Recruit, develop, mentor, and retain high-quality and diverse faculty, staff, and students.
We will enhance our educational ecosystem to drive student preparation, persistence, and success.
Key Progress Measure: All undergraduate students will have completed an experiential learning opportunity, such as a co-op, internship, education abroad experience, or undergraduate research opportunity. Half of these students will engage in at least two such experiences.
Key Progress Measure: Create opportunities for all students to engage in meaningful experiences that explicitly consider diversity, equity, and inclusion within the context of engineering and computer science.
Key Progress Measure: We will develop and assess programs that incentivize and reward excellence in the classroom. We will double participation in the ESSA program.
We will increase our impact through effective engagement with internal and external partners and collaborators.
Key Progress Measure: We will increase the annual number of All-University Awards received by members of the college by 20% and develop formal mechanisms across the College to identify and nominate faculty, staff, and students for prestigious awards both internal and external to the university.
Key Progress Measure: We will increase the frequency of industrial collaborations and develop innovative models for engaging these partners in both educational and research settings.
We strive to provide a place where faculty, students, and staff experience and contribute to a community that embraces and celebrates diversity. Through our collective efforts, we aim to offer each individual an equitable, supportive, positive, and safe environment that results in a place for all to belong and thrive.
