Building for the Future: The Graduate Center Strategic Plan 2017–2022

Focused exclusively upon graduate education and advanced research, the Graduate Center is unique in the experience it can offer students and faculty, distinctive in its commitment to scholarship and learning for the public good, and distinguished—across the breadth of the arts and sciences—in quality and creativity.

By strengthening our communities of teaching and scholarship, we aspire to provide New York City with the public flagship of research and advanced learning that it deserves; to enrich public understanding; and to serve as a national leader in graduate education.

To effect this transformation, we have set four priorities, each advanced by a set of strategies:


PRIORITY ONE

Fostering and integrating communities of learning and research


Priority 1

PRIORITY TWO

Building the theoretical and experimental sciences


Priority 2

PRIORITY THREE

Advancing our public mission by increasing our impact

PRIORITY FOUR
