I am very pleased to share with you the Villanova University School of Law Strategic Plan: Advance. Transform. Lead.
This plan represents a new vision for Villanova Law. Together, we will advance Villanova Law to new levels of excellence, strength, and prestige; transform how our students learn the law and what it means to be a Villanova lawyer; and lead our institution into the innovative, global future of legal education.
The Strategic Plan will guide the work of the Law School over the next five years, helping us to navigate the challenges of today’s legal education landscape while remaining true to our Augustinian Catholic traditions. It will also provide us with direction as we inspire our students to think critically, act compassionately, and succeed while serving others.
It is my hope that every member of our community feels a sense of genuine ownership and pride in this plan for our collective future.
