Strategic Plan

TO BOLDLY GO: A strategic vision for UC Davis

The University of California, Davis contains an extraordinary breadth of disciplinary expertise that has grown and been nurtured over the decades. One of our enduring strengths is the community’s commitment to collaborate and cooperate in research and education. Our success will rest heavily on our ability to leverage this great strength, identify priorities, and build academic excellence.

UC Davis’ strategic plan, “To Boldly Go,” outlines the aspirations and methods for guiding the university to new heights of distinction over the next 10 years. The plan draws on our responsibility as a public land-grant university and maximizes our opportunities as a driver of innovation and economic growth for the public good.

Our Goals


Next steps

“To Boldly Go” is a living document that will result in broader discussions about how to achieve and sustain these five goals. A new committee or working groups will be established to develop an implementation plan, in consultation with the Academic Senate and other campus constituencies, and to track and report progress using a series of metrics and benchmarks outlined in the appendices.
