Valparaiso University

All Hands on Deck

Upon his appointment as president in early 2021, President Jose Padilla recognized the urgent need for a refreshed vision and a new strategic plan – one that will inform the work of Valparaiso University’s faculty and staff for the next five years.

Led by Kevin Goebbert, an alumnus and tenured faculty member, along with a consulting partner, the strategic plan will work with the campus community to develop bold and actionable objectives that will expand the University’s ability to fulfill its mission to prepare students to lead and serve. The full strategic planning committee consists of faculty and staff representing many different campus areas. The committee has been charged to engage and work with all of University constituencies – including, students, alumni, and community partners – to develop and prioritize initiatives that will lead to a thriving University for our students, alumni, regional, and broader community.
