Dr. Noreen M. Carrocci

Dear Friends,

In 2007, we began an in-depth process involving people from all parts of the institution, with a goal of affirming our identity and core values, and developing a Vision Statement and five-year Strategic Plan for Newman University. I am happy to report that through the hard work and commitment of everyone, a comprehensive plan was created, which was enthusiastically approved in late February 2009 by the Board of Trustees.

The entire Strategic Plan consists of five sections, each of which has been developed in a collaborative process involving participants from across the university community. It begins with a newly designed one sentence Mission Statement that captures, boldly and succinctly, Newman University’s distinct identity. Next come the Core Values of the university and a Vision Statement that envisions Newman in 2013. The meat of the Strategic Plan is contained in the Strategic Goals and Objectives section, which lays out the path that Newman will take to make its vision a reality. The Strategic Plan document closes with the Newman Code, a statement of the commitment of all of the individuals who make up the Newman University community.

This Strategic Plan showcases the hard work and dedication of many people across Newman University: faculty, staff, students, alumni, and trustees. We are proud of these efforts, but we know that the real work has just begun. We invite you to join with us over the next five years as we strive to make the vision contained in this plan a reality.

Caritas Christi Urget Nos!
The Charity of Christ Urges Us!

Sincerely,

Noreen M. Carrocci Signature
