University Strategic Plan and Priorities

Strategic Plan Overview

Our number one goal as an institution is to serve our Community best. Our focus on preparing future healthcare leaders lends us perspective on the ever-changing state of the health and sciences field and periodically reflecting on and amending our 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 priorities that reflect the Community's values and will guide MCPHS for years to come.

Working together to create positive change

Each of our strategic vision priorities 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, working together to deliver a comprehensive and inclusive execution of the overall plan.

Strategic Priorities

In recognition of the changing healthcare landscape and contemporary issues, MCPHS has reevaluated and expanded its strategic priorities to meet the needs of our growing Community and position ourselves as forward-thinking thought leaders in the fields of healthcare and higher education. The priorities of the Strategic Plan reflect the progression of the health industry and serve to advance and empower our graduates to make the world a healthier place.
