Over the past year, Florida State University’s Office of Research led a process to craft a research strategic plan for the university known as ASPIRE – A Strategic Plan to Inspire Research Excellence.

With the help of an accomplished faculty committee, input from the Council of Associate Deans for Research, analyses of funding and publication trends, and a campuswide survey, we have crafted a robust and ambitious plan for FSU that identifies strategic areas of focus and investment.

The vision and initiatives for executing these strategies are detailed throughout the ASPIRE plan. FSU has very dedicated faculty, staff, and students who share a deep passion for this great institution and are committed to helping it rise to new heights.

The ASPIRE plan is now available. Please click below to view the plan.
