Throughout 2023 and 2024, the School of Law will engage in strategic planning to bring key law school voices and constituencies together to celebrate accomplishments and memorialize its five-year vision, long-term goals and priorities. The updated strategic plan will build upon the success of the 2013-2018 University of Baltimore School of Law Strategic Plan, which brought four principal areas into focus: curriculum development, the cost of legal education, admissions and student career planning.
The School of Law’s Strategic Planning Committee met several times during the spring of 2023 and developed strategic-planning process milestones as follows:
- Spring 2023 – Strategic Planning Committee convenes and staff retreat held to obtain staff feedback on priorities and goals
- Fall 2023 – Faculty retreat to obtain faculty feedback on priorities and goals, as well as mission, vision and diversity statements
- Fall 2023 – Spring 2024 - Further identify and develop priority areas and goals, engage faculty, staff, students and alumni/practitioners for feedback, and begin to draft updated strategic plan
- Fall 2024 - Finalize strategic plan
