Our Four Pillars | Weatherhead School at Case Western Reserve University

Our Four Pillars

The uniqueness and strength of Destination Weatherhead lies in the synergistic combination of our twin strategic focus areas and four pillars. This fusion will create a learning organization that brings value to all our students, staff, faculty, alumni, Case Western Reserve University and our larger community both within Cleveland and far beyond.

Pillar One

Pillar One: Imparting Market-Focused Education

We will build excellence in analytics and healthcare management while building an infrastructure to monitor and react to marketplace demands and trends.

Pillar Two

Pillar Two: Engaging in Research of Enduring Consequence

We will support, incentivize, and reward research that is valued both within the academy and by the marketplace through quality research output and PhD/Doctoral programs.

Pillar Three

Pillar Three: Creating a Distinctive Brand

We will engage meaningfully with our Weatherhead family (alumni and community) to expand our reputation and become the "school of choice" for learning, research, and employment.

Pillar Four

Pillar Four: Fostering a Diverse and Inclusive Environment

We will cultivate a diverse and inclusive environment where our students, staff, faculty and alumni of all backgrounds feel a sense of belonging, respect, and being valued.
