Institutional Initiatives

Dr. Brown has instituted a number of major college initiatives including:

Strategic Planning
From the outset of her presidency, Dr. Brown has engaged the college community in strategic planning, starting with an unprecedented multi-year, multi-million dollar initiative that coordinated strategic and investment planning. In 2006, that effort led to a new and more ambitious plan that challenged the college community to choose its own future and set out a series of five ambitious and transformative goals. In 2014, the success of that initiative led to the college's current plan: Our Legacy, Our Future, FIT Beyond 2020. Learn more about FIT's strategic plan.

Diversity is a fact of life: a powerful source of enrichment, a vital tool in a competitive marketplace, and a cause for celebration. It is a critical element in fulfilling FIT's mission to prepare students with the kind of global perspective they will need for success. Dr. Brown established the FIT Diversity Council to foster a climate of inclusion within the campus community. The Council administers a grant program and sponsors events and activities that bring students, faculty, staff and administration together to understand the values of a diverse campus community.

The Sustainability Council was established by the President, to develop and foster sustainability initiatives throughout the FIT community. The Council administers a grant program and organizes an annual sustainability conference. Learn more about the Sustainability Council.
