When Virginia Commonwealth University embarked on our ambitious six-year Quest for Distinction in 2011, we could not have imagined the pace or the scope of the progress we would make. We have much to celebrate, from record research awards to soaring six-year graduation rates.
Together as one university, however, we have more work to do. Our strategic plan illustrates our goals toward our vision of preeminence as a learning-centered, urban, public research university. Our metrics serve as the measures by which we will gauge our progress.
