Old Dominion University’s five-year strategic plan, “Forward-Focused: Where Innovation Meets Possibilities,” is built around seven key areas: Academic Excellence; Branding, Marketing, and Communication; Corporate/ Community Partnerships and Economic Development; Philanthropic Giving and Alumni Engagement; Research Growth; Strategic Enrollment Growth; and Student Engagement and Success. Together, these focal areas lay the groundwork for the University’s development and growth during the next five years. The various goals and strategies defined in these areas, along with their associated key performance indicators (KPIs), will bring the University’s vision to successful fruition.
