NYIT's institutional priorities have been set according to a long-term strategic plan, NYIT 2030: Setting Directions, Meeting Challenges, since its publication in 2006. The plan begins with the mission, vision, and goals that have guided the university since it was founded in 1955. It charts a course for the long-run. It is a plan that is both flexible enough to adapt to emergent circumstances and precise enough to provide effective guidance.
Effective planning always entails gaining focus, building on strengths, and developing exemplary programs and centers of excellence. It is in taking these steps that an institution achieves longstanding academic criteria for excellence. Our plan is no exception, and many examples of such incremental improvement are found within it. However, NYIT 2030 goes further. By setting a long-term time frame, it aims to lead by doing something different and great, and in so doing, creating the criteria, including those that do not yet exist, that will define educational excellence in the 21st century.
Publication of the plan was the beginning; since 2006 mechanisms have been developed to integrate its vision into the life of the university and make the plan a reality.
