COE Beach 2030 Action Plan

Executive Summary

The COE Action Plan is the College of Engineering’s response to the university’s strategic plan, Beach 2030. In it, we have charted strategic directions for the college and aligned our activities to contribute to the university’s future. The five strategic priorities for Beach 2030 are: engage all students; expand access to higher education; promote intellectual achievement; build community; and cultivate resilience. These priorities guide the seven action zones through which we will act: (1) Equitable and Empowering Culture, (2) Student-Ready University, (3) Re-imagine Faculty, (4) Re-imagine Staff, (5) Growth Strategy, (6) Advance Partnerships, and (7) Future-Ready University. Click on any of the buttons on the left to learn more about our action plan and the progress made to date.
