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

The Next Chapter

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.
