Strategic Plan

ROOTED IN PROVIDENCE: TO GROW • TO GRADUATE • TO LEAD


OLLU STRATEGIC PLAN -2013-2018

OLLU’s strategic, five-year plan, “Rooted in Providence: To Grow, To Graduate, and To Lead” was officially rolled out in 2013. The plan, developed by faculty and staff during a year-long process, was based upon OLLU's Mission, Vision, and Core Values, input from all University constituents and market research commissioned by Deloitte and Chmura Economics and Analytics.

The plan is organized around three themes: To Grow, To Graduate and To Lead. The first theme, To Grow, aims at increasing enrollment through new modes of program delivery and developing new degree programs, increasing fundraising, and building a campus infrastructure to support growth.

The To Graduate theme includes plans to increase student persistence to graduation, provide more real-world learning experiences, and prepare graduates for a multicultural workforce.

Under the To Lead theme, initiatives are designed to empower the University community to be innovative and entrepreneurial, to inspire students to examine the place of faith in their lives, and impact higher education on a national scale.

Using the Strategic Plan as a launching point, the ultimate goal for OLLU is to become one of the top 20 Catholic universities in the United States.
