President's Report 2022

THE PATH TO 2025 Despite the challenges brought on by a global pandemic, NSU remained committed to advancing its strategic priorities. The goal of joining the top lists of prestigious institutions has been foundational to the university since day one, and this is further reflected in Vision 2025 and the pursuit of being recognized as a preeminent, doctoral-research university by 2025. With our core values as our keystone, NSU is focusing on areas of preeminence in research and academics. As such, we have expanded our cumulative goal to raising $500 million in philanthropic gift commitments and $500 million in grants/contracts awarded since fiscal year 2009, representing a combined billion-dollar 2025 cumulative external funding campaign. NSU has already demonstrated its leadership and preeminence in many areas, including medical research, early childhood development, and marine research and ocean conservation, among others. NSU’s Vision 2025 Strategic Plan drives all the ways that NSU continues to innovate and set a standard of excellence for others to follow. 5
