At Columbia, the future is everything.
Technologies are industry-current. Curricula are cutting-edge. Faculty members are innovative leaders in their fields. Art and ideas are avant-garde. And as an institution, we must ask ourselves: what's next?
This is our navigation system.
Focus 2016 is a strategic plan for the future of Columbia. It is a college-wide, systematic approach to the challenges and opportunities we face. The plan focuses on three key components of institutional vitality: student learning, enrollment and finances. It places us in positions that are strong and sustainable as we navigate the coming years. We'll do this through the accomplishment of targeted objectives that involve the entire campus community. It's all in the service of our mission to prepare our graduates for a rewarding life and career in the arts and media; and to author the culture of their times.
