In the summer of 2023, the University released “Notre Dame 2033: A Strategic Framework.” This Framework will guide the University for the next 10 years. Read the Framework.


The University of Notre Dame’s strategic plan, “A Legacy Expanded,” builds on the University’s five goals as outlined by Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., in his inaugural year (2005) as president and provides focus, transparency, and accountability for Notre Dame’s activities for the next 10 years (2014-2024).

Each goal in “A Legacy Expanded” includes a set of enduring commitments—well-established strategies that have and will continue to guide our actions—as well as enhancement areas that will spur new energy and innovation in the University’s pursuit of that goal and, ultimately, its overarching vision.

Augmenting the University’s strategic plan are the strategic plans of the colleges, schools, and divisions. These individual plans include goals specific to the unit that have been developed to align with and support the University’s five goals.
