Rowan University Strategic Pillars

The University’s strategy is anchored in four pillars:


We are committed to the development and transmission of new knowledge and providing rigorous, experiential and engaging educational experiences; a vibrant and healthy campus life; a rich intellectual, cultural, and artistic environment; and a safe, supportive and inclusive culture that respects and values the diversity of all of its members.


We are committed to expanding quality educational opportunities for qualified students by increasing our enrollment capacity; supporting student success; utilizing an increasing array of pedagogies and platforms; and creating new pathways to undergraduate, graduate, post-graduate, and professional studies, including medicine.


We are committed to keeping education affordable by managing costs; diversifying our revenue streams; reducing student debt; limiting tuition increases to the rate of inflation as measured by the consumer price index; and enhancing internship and employment opportunities for our students and graduates.

Economic Engine

We are committed to benefiting our local and state communities by making every effort to partner with and invest in regional businesses and organizations that contribute in meaningful ways to furthering our mission; preparing an educated citizenry and skilled workforce; enhancing the health of our citizens and the quality of life; and developing innovative products, services, and ideas.
