A Message From the Dean

Together, we transform.

The Fox School has been educating the business community for over a century. Our excellence in teaching, research and market-driven programs offer students the best possible experiences and outcomes.

With that in mind, we created a Strategic Plan that explains how we will move the school forward. Our plan articulates what kind of community we want to cultivate.

We invite you to review the plan and become a more integral part of our efforts to continue to innovate in academia and industry. Here’s to our shared future.

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.
