Exploration is rewarded with discovery—in this case, five strategic themes that are guiding our path forward. Each approaches the future from a different perspective, but together they converge into a single path: building a greater sense of engagement and purpose as we transform the student experience and chart a new course for the University.
Focusing on Students First
Our unwavering focus on student growth and development inspires students to expand their learning beyond the classroom, building an engaged and vibrant community of learners and readying students for real-world success.
Raising Rider's Profile
Promoting our image and value to the outside world through branding and marketing is vital to attracting students and building a more enduring sense of "Rider Pride."
Being an Employer of Choice
Our people are important. By building a more diverse workforce that is valued and supported, we can better attract, retain and inspire world-class faculty, administrators and staff.
Investing in Our Future
Cultivating, managing and investing our resources and aligning them with our priorities will have lasting, positive impacts on our competitiveness and legacy.
Our commitment to planning, implementation and continuous improvement will ensure our vision for the future and our students’ success.
A multi-year strategic plan is only as good as the annual divisional plans that support it. Together, they ensure that our mission and vision are fulfilled.
