Strategic Plan

The College of Education's Strategic Plan was initially conceived in fall 2006 to support the college's overall mission and vision. It was first revised in spring 2007 using feedback from its Administrative Council and college committee chairs, and again in summer 2007 with feedback from faculty and staff through the refinement of objectives and metrics. After Auburn adopted its university-wide strategic plan  link to external web site, college leadership adapted its standing strategic plan to better align with and reflect overarching university priorities.
