Our Strategic Plan: Key Goals and Initiatives

Goal Three: Community

By engaging colleagues and neighbors within and outside the university and increasing our involvement throughout the region, Case Western Reserve University will expand and deepen our relationships with the larger community. Specifically, the university will:

Better engage alumni

We seek to bring our graduates into closer, mutually beneficial relationships with one another and our campus community.

Develop and improve integrated programs with leading University Circle institutions

The university has the unique opportunity to draw on the resources of preeminent cultural, scientific, educational, and health care institutions that are our immediate neighbors.

Increase involvement in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio

Cleveland is one of the nation’s major cities, with opportunities and challenges that relate well to many of our educational and research programs.

Strengthen relationships with stakeholders at the state, federal and international level Footer
