Kettering University 2019
Four Strategic Pillars of Success
Kettering University has been working together with key stakeholders to define and redefine our strategic framework for the coming decade. The framework is what drives us to develop and execute our business plans. We seek to reveal and connect with the attributes of Kettering University that make us uniquely qualified to educate the next generation of experientially educated engineers and business leaders. Our programs deliver astoundingly capable STEM and business graduates. No other university does what we do – as well as we do it. The accomplishments of our graduates are the proof. As we plan for our second hundred years, we focus on four strategic pillars of success.
Kettering has an extraordinary ability to attract top talent, whether it’s award-winning students or world-class faculty members. We will expand our enrollment intentionally through strategic financial aid packages and fixed-tuition guarantees to attract and retain a more diversified student population. We will aim our efforts at students and families who value private, experiential and applied learning.
Now is the time to focus the global talent conversation on what Kettering does best – deliver an education that couples theory and practice better than any other institution in the world. We renew our commitment to experiential and applied learning in collaboration with our extraordinary faculty and industry partners to deliver amazing classroom and applied research experiences.
The City of Flint and the surrounding area are important attributes of the Kettering experience. It is imperative that we actively engage in the economic renewal of our city and region by fueling innovation and entrepreneurship in our graduates and by collaborating with our educational partners in the region.
The University is only as strong as our relationships with alumni, corporate partners, educators, neighbors and friends. We will strengthen a culture of engagement and giving with all our stakeholders to support Kettering’s mission.
