Strategic Initiatives

Strategic Initiatives works to align RISD’s mission with its impact on the world, and to shape and drive organizational, programmatic and operational transformation across the institution. We engage the full community to identify strategic priorities and needs, and then monitor our progress toward those goals according quantitative and qualitative measures.

Through our work we support the RISD community in making well-informed choices about how to best use our resources and direct our efforts, thus strengthening our institution for continued impact.
