University Strategic Plan

Ever to Excel: Advancing Boston College's Mission

In January 2016 Boston College embarked on the University Strategic Planning Initiative—a new strategic planning effort to identify institutional priorities for the next decade.  Led by co-chairs Executive Vice President Michael J. Lochhead and Provost and Dean of Faculties David Quigley, and following an intense, collaborative process, our new Strategic Directions have been approved by the Boston College Board of Trustees. These directions will shape the University’s priorities over the coming decade.
