A Five-Year Plan for St. John’s Future

The Next Chapter

In 2021, Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P., President, announced the formation of a Strategic Planning Committee. Fr. Shanley charged the Committee with developing a comprehensive strategic plan with clear objectives and measurable goals that will prioritize the activities and identify the resources needed to best support St. John’s University’s mission and vision going forward.
