The VCU School of Dentistry's strategic plan is a living document providing guidance toward the current and future priorities.
In 2011, Virginia Commonwealth University implemented the university’s new strategic plan, Quest for Distinction. The School of Dentistry asked Jim Schroeder, D.D.S. to lead the efforts toward developing a five-year strategic plan that will reflect the priorities of Quest and move the school forward. Schroeder, a 1976 alumnus, serves as an adjunct professor in the Department of General Practice and president of the consulting group Leadership By Design. The final plan was approved Sept. 1, 2013.
Throughout the process, the strategic planning committee continues to engage and encourage feedback from the dental school community.
