Engaging key stakeholders and thinking ambitiously about the impact that we might have at Notre Dame and in the world over the next decade and beyond, the Institute developed a new five-year strategic plan in 2016 that aims to redefine where the Institute might make significant contributions, without diluting its core strengths and identity.
In the 2017-22 strategic plan, Kellogg maintains the themes of democracy and human development at the center of its work. While building on geographic strengths in Latin America and increasingly in Africa, our primary ambition is to promote research, teaching, and institutional linkages related to democracy and human development more than to specialize in specific parts of the world.
Notre Dame aspires to be among the world’s preeminent research universities, with ever-increasing international reach, while remaining true to its Catholic character. The Kellogg Institute's aspirations are linked to the University’s broader goals in research, education, and internationalization.
The plan is structured around three paramount goals for the next five years:
I. Promoting research excellence on critical global challenges
II. Providing exceptional educational opportunities for Notre Dame students
III. Building linkages to support the University’s strategic goals on internationalization.
