Strategic Plan 2021-2026
The college's initial strategic plan for the five-year period 2014-2019 laid out goals and specific objectives in the areas of instruction, research and service. The college monitored its progress in achieving those objectives on an annual basis and systematically used the evaluation findings for continuous improvement.
The ETSU College of Public Health is the school of choice for students who want an exceptional educational experience in a world-class environment.
In January 2019, the college Leadership Council held a retreat to outline the 2021-2026 strategic plan development process and to further assure the quality of existing academic programs. This resulted in a three-part process plan that was presented for discussion at the spring 2019 college-wide faculty and staff meeting. The plan called for the creation of four internal planning workgroups representing faculty, staff and students, five professional discipline-specific advisory groups, and three community advisory committees.
The Leadership Council identified three over-arching principles for this strategic planning process: creating the best possible student experience; delivering consistently world-class education; and conducting research that advances the publics health. The 2014-2019 strategic plan, developed through this highly participatory faculty-led process, articulated six strategic focus areas for the college: education, research, service and applied public health, diversity, workforce, and resources, and laid out goals and objectives in each area.
To advance health and well-being for all through innovative teaching, research, and community engagement.
