Strategic Plan 2021-2024
I am honored to present Moravian University’s 2021-2024 Strategic Plan. Moravian University is the sixth oldest college in the United States and has been educating the next generation for over 279 years. This plan is built by the Moravian community and demonstrates our continued responsibility. As John Amos Comenius stated, “Education should concern itself with that which concerns society” and that everyone should be educated.
Moravian University, a comprehensive university, is part of the New American Colleges and Universities consortium, which seeks to integrate liberal education, professional programs, and civic engagement. Moravian commits to providing undergraduate students with an excellent academic experience through this plan, which combines the best in career advising, leadership and teamwork preparation, global opportunities, workforce-ready badging, and real-world career experiences.
Through partnership and investment, Moravian University will continue to focus on the growth of its graduate and continuing education student populations. We also commit to continued leadership in the healthcare and rehabilitation sciences arenas by expanding our health care programming. We will begin a new chapter by becoming leaders in behavioral and mental health programming. By the end of this plan, with our partner St. Luke’s University Health Network, we will be the educational leaders for community health care and well-being. Moravian University will be between 2000-2200 undergraduates and 1000-1500 graduate students by the end of this plan. It will reflect the diverse community of which it serves in both the student body and the faculty and staff and creates a culture of equity and inclusion for all. Moravian will build the systems and facilities and invest the resources it needs to deliver on this promise to our students.

Moravian University’s liberal arts education prepares each individual for a reflective life, fulfilling careers, and transformative leadership in a world of change.
A Moravian education is one of action and doing. It is hands on, where students learn through experiential means in order to be producers of new knowledge. Moravian students work together practicing leadership, teamwork, community support, and reflection in order to significantly contribute to a more equitable and just future society.
