Strategic Plan: Robert Morris University Strategic Plan | Robert Morris University


Robert Morris University recently began a new five-year strategic plan, Preparing Students for a Lifetime of Engagement, Leadership and Well-Being. The new 2014-2019 plan will build from the accomplishments of its predecessor, but the university community re-examined RMU's mission, core values, and major priorities as a normal part of the planning process.

Input into these three plan elements was gathered from the university’s leadership and Board of Trustees during the summer of 2013. In fall 2013 a Strategic Plan Steering Committee comprised of a representative sample of the university community developed RMU’s 2014-2019 mission, core values, major initiatives and associated goals. The 2014-2019 strategic plan has been approved by the Board of Trustees, and individual RMU departments developed goals, measures, and outcomes based on the plan's major initiatives.


For more than 90 years, RMU has delivered academic excellence with a professional focus.

Today, we emphasize engaged learning and promote a global perspective.

Above all, we believe that individuals matter.

Because of all this, RMU is changing lives.


Robert Morris University is a student-centered institution that transforms lives by building knowledge, skills, and citizenship, all of which focus on the achievement of one's personal and professional goals. Engaged learning, within a highly supportive environment, enables our students to develop strong communication skills, excel within collaborative settings, effectively address complex problems with innovative solutions, and lead with integrity and compassion throughout their lives and careers in a diverse and rapidly changing world.
