Creating a Unified Mission, Vision, and Strategic Plan

The Berklee community is engaging in a process to shape a shared mission, vision, and strategic plan to advance our institution’s goals and pave a transformative path forward for Berklee. Through this effort, we will respect the unique attributes of each learning environment while strengthening our identity as an innovative and collaborative force within the performing arts.

Planning will occur in two distinct phases, each designed to guide us toward our shared vision for 2030. Phase one, from 2024 to 2026, will prioritize the needs and objectives of Berklee’s existing campuses and operations. This two-year period will provide a strong foundation for the second four-year phase, 2026 to 2030, which will be dedicated to launching key initiatives and transformative projects. All of this work will be anchored in our fundamental values. We will use this two-plus-four approach to connect the work of attending to our most pressing current needs with our aspirational future, positioning us to shape the arts education landscape for the generations to come.
