LRU:NXT Strategic Plan

La Roche's strategic plan, LRU:NXT, will define the University's vision, values and themes through 2026.

NXT is texting shorthand for next, and it is meant to imply a readiness and belief in La Roche’s ability to create its own future.

Themes in the strategic plan include:

  • Innovate and align the academic portfolio so that traditional, nontraditional and graduate students develop the knowledge and skills needed in the post-pandemic economy.
  • Maximize student recruitment and persistence with a greater emphasis on recruitment and retention of freshmen, transfer and nontraditional students, as well as the development of new athletic and co-curricular programming to grow tuition.
  • Be entrepreneurs, be bold and diversify revenues by growing, creating and capitalizing on centers and existing capacities to spearhead revenue opportunities and attract investments, donations and growth. This includes forging new relationships to seed program growth.
  • Align and optimize physical and human resources by deploying people, technology and space to support LRU:NXT.
