During its quarterly meeting on Dec. 1, 2023, the Radford University Board of Visitors approved a Two-Year Strategic Plan for the university. The plan took effect on January 1, 2024 and will guide the university’s efforts through Dec. 31, 2025.

This plan seeks to create a distinctive position for Radford University as a public higher education institution within the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The plan is centered around four priorities:

  • Defining Radford’s distinctive nature
  • Serving as a core partner to economic development efforts with our communities
  • Stabilizing enrollment to best serve the Commonwealth of Virginia
  • Repositioning resources to maintain affordability

The areas of focus, tactics and metrics can be viewed in the Two-Year Strategic Plan document. 

The plan was developed by President Bret Danilowicz, the Radford University Board of Visitors, university vice presidents, and the Staff, A/P Faculty and Faculty senates.

An introduction to the Two-Year Strategic Plan was shared with members of the Radford University community during a Homecoming presentation on Oct. 20, 2023

Concurrent to execution of the Two-Year Strategic Plan, Radford University will develop a five-year strategic plan that will begin on Jan. 1, 2026.
