SCU: Impact 2028 will be an aspirational, authentic plan that outlines goals and strategies for forming leaders of competence, conscience, and compassion. A broad swath of stakeholders (including students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, regents, and the Jesuit community) will have opportunities for input throughout the process.
