Reimagining the Future

A Strategic Plan for SDSU

The Strategic Plan will establish San Diego State University’s vision and mission for the next five years, elevating the distinctive nature of the university and its campus community.

The plan will serve as the primary guide for SDSU’s growth and commitment to teaching, research and creativity, with the intention of transforming the lives of students and engaging our communities. We believe and know that the transformative experience provided at San Diego State University enriches lives and strengthens communities on our own campus and in our binational region, and has a lasting impact around the world through the work of our students, faculty, staff and alumni.

The campus community is invited to attend the kickoff event for San Diego State University’s strategic planning process, to be held Monday, September 23, from 8:15 to 9 a.m. in Montezuma Hall of the Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union. The community is also encouraged to register to participate in at least one discussion group to be offered over a three-day period, Monday, September 23, through Wednesday, September 25. If you would like to participate during the kickoff event or group discussion sessions and require specific accommodations, please email [email protected].

The survey has concluded. Thank you for your feedback. We continue to accept ideas and questions via the feedback form.

A Message from the President

Dear SDSU Family,

Last year, when I arrived at San Diego State University, I promised that a strategic plan would come only after I had the opportunity to listen. I knew that listening intently to our students, faculty, staff, and alumni would help me appreciate SDSU’s rich legacy, the challenges we face today, and the opportunities ahead.

Patience, clarity, and communication will be our priorities every step of the way. My heartfelt desire is that you engage throughout this process, as it is your collective ideas that will yield a Strategic Plan that is distinct, reflective of SDSU’s legacy, and which will transform how we imagine our future.

With enthusiasm and sincerity,

Adela de la Torre
San Diego State University President
