Our Strategic Plan Goals

The Humanities as a Foundation for Transformation

Ensure that the Scranton student experience is transformational, integrated and grounded in the humanities as a pathway to understanding the human experience in its many dimensions.

Faith, Passion and Purpose – The Student’s Journey

Engage students as individuals through personal attention that helps them explore their faith, discern their purpose and pursue their passion, as they work to create a more just and sustainable world.

Advancing the University Through Innovation

Advance the University into the future by challenging ourselves to educate and support an ever-changing, diverse landscape of students in ways that are affordable, relevant and innovative.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion – A Welcoming and Supportive Community

Reflect and understand the diversity of the world by demanding that diversity be a priority as we build an inclusive community and campus culture, develop and deliver our education and shape our student experience.

Growing Partnerships in Our Mission

Invite and inspire our alumni, parents, friends and community to be partners in the mission of the University.
