As CAES sought to engage in strategic planning updates, we realized that our “plan” needed to explicitly illustrate how we honor our stakeholders and openly acknowledge that we cannot place process above people. Nor, can we place ambitious agendas above agility and adaptability. Our new vision prioritizes our adaptability, creativity, open inquire, trustfulness, respect, reciprocity and advocacy for and with our faculty. It is centered on our faculty and stakeholders within the mission and vision—not as third-party beneficiaries, but as central decision-making partners. Instead of rigid strategic plans and tactical operations, we have opted for commitment statements. The goals within each will reflect our four major pillars and our 16-member Faculty Advisory Board contributes to our measures for success within each.

Adaptable, Creativity, Inquiry, Trustful, Respectful, Reciprocal, and Advocates
Co-Creating Our Experiences: A Vision of joint Decision-Making and Prioritization
Our Center’s mission is dedicated to unleashing curiosity, creativity and innovation in partnership with and as advocates who champion the talented NYUSPS faculty. Our partnership recognizes and reimagines the relationship between teaching and learning in the pursuit of academic excellence. This is accomplished through participating actively in conversations that foster deep and lifelong learning with the faculty, students and administration of NYUSPS. The CAES team is committed to this mission with and for our faculty by striving for excellence in our four pillars of learning design, faculty professional pathways, assessments of learning, and educational technologies.
