Planning for Our Future Together
Our Health Center has been a leader since it was founded and is poised to move into national prominence through initiatives such as Bioscience Connecticut. Our schools, our faculty, our students, and our staff are among the best anywhere. There is much of which we can be very proud!
Yet, a sobering economic picture has resulted in substantial budget reductions over the past several years and significant operational and financial challenges. As we look ahead, we must have sharp objectives and clear priorities. We cannot do everything, but we want to do everything we choose well.
Our plan for the Health Center will complement the thoughtful efforts of the broader University, the state branches of government, strategic partners, prior strategy development efforts, schools’, departments’ and units’ plans. They should be mutually supportive – even synergistic. The perspective of the planning process is Health Center wide – our schools, departments, centers, institutes, community and other stakeholders. We are more than the sum of our parts; the refresh must reflect and respect the parts but create synergy among them.
We have designed a process to celebrate the diversity of ideas and capture the creative thinking of faculty, staff, students and the broader UConn Health Center community. Please use this site to assist in creating a picture of what the Health Center should look like in 2020 and then determine steps necessary to get there.
This is a strategic refresh because we do not propose a blank slate but rather embrace who we are today, our recent planning efforts and our current strategic initiatives where they contribute to our vision of UConn Health 2020.
