The Future of Florida Poly

As educators of the architects of the future, we are working to ensure our own future is strong, vibrant, and a critical driver of the Central Florida economy. 

Titled Advancing to ExcellenceFlorida Poly 2.0 outlines exactly how we’ll get there. The 2018-2023 strategic plan provides a blueprint that takes the University from its current state to the nexus of a burgeoning research park located adjacent to our Lakeland campus.  


The plan identifies four main priorities based on dominant higher education trends: degree alignment, student success, economic development, and affordability and efficiency. It details exactly how Florida Poly will address these priorities, including by strengthening its unique STEM curriculum.
