The University of Notre Dame’s strategic plan, “A Legacy Expanded,” builds on the University’s five goals as outlined by Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., in his inaugural year (2005) as president and provides focus, transparency, and accountability for Notre Dame’s activities for the next 10 years (2014-2024).

The performance management system for administrators and staff members also reinforces the contribution that each individual makes to both the goals and the values of our institution.
