A Message From Dean Anderson

Where we’ve been, where we’re going

In October 2019, we launched the Fox Strategic Plan 2025. Our goal was simple: to craft a plan that offers our students the best possible business education and outcomes, as well as emphasizes our diverse community.

One year later, I’m pleased to share the 2019-2020 State of the School report, which highlights the progress we have made in our four pillars of Educational Innovation, Research Leadership, Inclusive Culture and Community Engagement.

I am thankful for our devoted staff and faculty, who work exceptionally hard to support this plan and our mission. Their dedication, flexibility and adaptability are especially appreciated as we implemented the first year of the Strategic Plan while simultaneously navigating the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our Mission

The Fox School of Business transforms our students into responsible professionals and leaders through engagement with Fox communities committed to lifelong learning, service and the advancement of management practice.

The Process


Gather Insights

We surveyed and collected information from students, alumni, faculty, staff and our community to develop a clear understanding of who we are and what we stand for.


Form Strategic Declarations

Based on the information collected in the first phase, we formed a new mission, vision, culture statement, and set of values and goals that will guide the Fox School.


Create the Plan

Guided by our Strategic Declarations, we carefully articulated associated goals and initiatives that will make our vision a reality over the coming years.

Our Goals

Educational Innovation

Our students deserve the best possible outcomes and academic experiences, and our plan reaffirms our commitment to initiatives for students and alumni.

Research Leadership

We will help our faculty flourish through research and scholarship so that they will positively impact the world through innovative curricula, research and teaching methodologies.

Inclusive Culture

We prioritize diversity, equity and inclusion, and are committed to putting systems in place that support the personal and professional growth of faculty and staff.

Community Engagement

We commit to supporting each of our partners within the Temple University community, the Philadelphia business community, our local neighbors and the wider national and global community.


We believe in accountability and transparency.

We are working to identify key performance indicators (KPIs) by which we will measure the plan’s success. Our KPIs will allow us to track and report out on the progress we make as we move Fox forward.
