Our Plan for the Future

In 2018, we finalized our current strategic plan, Beyond Boundaries. It began with the cardinal points on our compass: education, research and scholarship, clinical care, outreach and economic development. From these points, it provided a course that still guides us as we continue to discover the true potential of this great university and its health system. We are currently working towards our new strategic plan and look forward to future successes at Augusta University.
