Strategic Plan

Strategic Planning at Wentworth: A Message from the President

Building on the many successes we achieved through Wentworth’s last strategic plan, SP 1.0 (2007-2012), we are now well into implementation of our new plan – SP 2.0 (2013-2017). Our shared vision, values, and strategic plan were approved by the Board Trustees in November 2012.

Our strategic plan aligns to a Strategy Map [see attached file] that reflects the five overarching strategic initiatives we are pursuing:

  1. Creating transformational educational experiences
  2. Embracing a culture of innovation and creativity
  3. Positioning and promoting Wentworth
  4. Enhancing institutional resources
  5. Engaging, empowering, and recruiting a diverse Wentworth community

Within these five strategic initiatives, we identified 18 strategies to achieve the goals of the current plan. I have appointed a cross-divisional Strategy Realization Team (the SRT) comprising faculty, staff, and students to work on achieving the goals for each strategy. I would like to extend an invitation to you to provide your feedback on the strategic plan implementation and to help us achieve the goals we set for ourselves by contacting the SRT.

We built this strategic plan as a community, and we will implement our strategy as a community as well. Please help us build a better Wentworth!
