Building on Excellence

Graduates throwing their caps

SDSU Strategic Plan

“Building on Excellence” establishes direction and priorities for the next several years.


Upon completion of the University's Strategic Planning Process, the final document, "Building on Excellence", was released. The plan presented three broad institutional goals with specific initiatives:

  • Student Success
  • Research and Creative Endeavors
  • Community and Communication

We have completed the first two years of the plan's implementation. For recent updates on Strategic Plan initiatives see our July 2016 Plan Update as well as our 2015-16 Priority Goals under 'Progress Updates'.

As we embark upon the third year of the plan's implementation, we express our appreciation to the University community for being involved in furthering the important initiatives within "Building on Excellence".
