Strategic Plan

The new Strategic Plan was adopted by the Board of Trustees in 2013. This is the third Strategic Plan developed by Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science since 2009.  These plans effectively portray three phases of the University’s development during this period.  The first presented the University’s response to profound academic and fiscal challenges.  The second summarized the University’s plan to re-establish a sustaining fiscal foundation.  The third Strategic Plan, presented in this document, establishes the University’s trajectory from 2013 through 2016 as it strives to achieve institutional excellence.

The Plan was developed by a broadly-based group derived from the University’s various stakeholder organizations and constituents through a process based upon communication and inclusiveness.
