Strategic Plan charts course to the future

At his State of the University Address on Oct. 20, President Brooks Keel unveiled Beyond Boundaries, Augusta University’s new strategic plan. Composed of four strategic focus areas – Education, Research and Scholarship, Clinical Care and Outreach and Economic Development – the plan was built from the feedback of over 3,500 surveys and focused by 700 additional comments from a follow-up survey and a series of town hall meetings.

The five-year plan is available for download at the university’s planning page.
