How the Strategic Planning Process Is Already Impacting Campus


UC San Diego’s strategic planning process is still underway, yet the input gathered, and the emerging themes and goals, have already led campus leaders to identify and seize opportunities over the last several months.

“This process has helped us to sharpen our mission to be a student-centered, research-oriented, service-oriented public university,” said Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla.  “Going forward, every decision we make will be based on these eight words.”

Key decisions based on these emerging themes this year include the creation of the Chancellor’s Associates Scholars program, the Center for Brain Activity Mapping, and an initiative to increase the number and quality of Ph.D. students at UC San Diego.  The campus also initiated a review of credit requirements to improve time to degree, and began renovation on biology and chemistry labs.
