About the Vision Project
If the Commonwealth is to compete effectively for jobs, investment and talent—and sustain our rich civic landscape—Massachusetts needs the best-educated citizenry and workforce in the nation and needs to be a national leader in research that drives economic development. Excellence at the Commonwealth’s 29 public colleges and universities is essential to meeting these needs. Through the Vision Project, the Commonwealth’s community colleges, state universities and University of Massachusetts have united with the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education in an ambitious strategic plan to strengthen our performance in both educational achievement and research—while holding ourselves accountable to the public for results.
