Even if you’ve just skimmed the pages of TCU Magazine, you’ve seen what can happen when a plan comes together.
In 2003, TCU embarked on a transformative journey we named Vision in Action, an initiative designed to elevate TCU to a great national university. In 2013, this was followed by a focus on creating world-class facilities with Vision in Action: The Academy of Tomorrow.
We’ve seen the results of our commitment to strategy. These ambitious dreams have resulted in innovative academic programs, an optimal campus environment and increasingly impressive faculty, staff and students from all over the world. TCU is a beautiful, thriving campus community that enjoys more visibility with each passing year.
Now that TCU has risen in rank and reputation, fulfilling promises and vision, it’s time to ask: What’s next? How do we continue the momentum of our success?
It’s now time to Lead On. The next three to five years represent the third phase of our strategic plan for TCU with Vision in Action: Lead On. This vision for our future has these four overarching goals, which we are charged by our Board of Trustees to implement:
Goal #1: Strengthen Academic Profile and Reputation
This may be our biggest and most far-reaching priority, and it’s one that has been in the making throughout our history. We have made tremendous progress here, and we need to keep that momentum going.
Goal #2: Strengthen Endowment
Endowment-supported scholarships, faculty and programs help us attract the best and brightest students as well as top teacher-scholars and researchers, solidifying TCU’s presence on the national academic stage.
Goal #3: Strengthen TCU Experience and Campus Culture
Through inclusion, engagement and inquiry, we will create a relationship-centric campus home environment where tomorrow’s leaders can develop and thrive.
Goal #4: Strengthen Workforce — Both Employees and Graduates
To be the best, we must nurture the strongest faculty and staff, who will then prepare our brightest graduates for the future, serving as ethical leaders in their chosen disciplines.
By doing all of this, we will bolster TCU and its ability to be a force for the greater good.
In these challenging times, it has become more important than ever to produce grounded, empathetic leaders who have the capacity and conscience to make a difference.
TCU is a place that can deliver on that future. Our plans to continue improving our world-class, values-centered university will help make the world a better place, Horned Frog by Horned Frog.
Stay tuned as we Lead On!

In more than a decade of commencement ceremonies, I have made it a point not to call attention to an individual student. But this past May I made not one but two exceptions.
What is it about TCU? The university’s connection culture has defined its ethos for generations. A new book reports that the friendly, welcoming Horned Frog family is a model in higher education. Is it also a competitive advantage?
