Strategic Action Plan for New York Tech's Future

Throughout 2020, the global COVID-19 pandemic, widespread movements for social justice, and economic recession have required higher education institutions, including New York Tech, to make major shifts in thinking and operations. Nevertheless, the events of this year underscore the importance of New York Tech's mission to provide career-oriented professional education, to offer access to opportunity to all qualified students, and to support research and scholarship that benefit the larger world.

As such, during the 2020–2021 academic year the chair of the strategic planning initiative—Jerry Balentine, D.O., Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, is leading the development of New York Institute of Technology's Strategic Action Plan. This initiative will bring together the resilient New York Tech community during a transformative year to forge a plan for a prosperous and sustainable future.

A multidisciplinary steering committee of faculty, staff, and students is leading the plan development. This page will be updated regularly with developments and resources for all members of the New York Tech community, including:
