Vision 2030 positions the College of Human Ecology for growth by articulating a focus on human health and well-being across our academic units and by laying out three scholarly areas of excellence where the College offers uniquely valuable contributions. This vision also identifies an ambitious and achievable set of initiatives and goals to guide our decisions and investments as we seek to bring the vision to reality.
Anchored by our focus on human health and well-being, we have identified five strategic priorities to guide actions and investments in the near term that allow us to realize our unique impact.
Highlighted below are early actions and investments that advance our priorities (updated 3-2-22).
