Strategic Plan

Our number one goal as an institution is to best serve our Community. Our focus on preparing future healthcare leaders lends us perspective on the ever-changing state of the health and sciences field, and likewise, on the importance of periodically reflecting on and amending our own principles and areas of focus. Following recent transformative events, such as a global pandemic and the appointment of our 6th President of MCPHS, we were inspired to reexamine our strategic priorities. Through a series of town hall meetings, surveys, focus groups and other collaborative exercises, our entire Community came together to help us form an updated Strategic Plan.

Strategic Vision

We are proud to announce the new Strategic Plan for Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS). Developed over the course of two years by a Strategic Planning Task Force, this plan identifies strategic priorities that will guide MCPHS for years to come. These strategic priorities reflect the Community’s values and vision for the future of MCPHS.

Working Groups

Each strategic priority has an established team of MCPHS Community members fully focused on it. These working groups are dedicated to developing and meeting measurable goals for the success of our institution and Community members. Trustees, students, alumni, faculty, staff, and external partners comprise these groups for a comprehensive and inclusive execution of the Strategic Plan.
