Goethe University Frankfurt’s strategic University Development Plan 

Goethe University Frankfurt's current strategic University Development Plan [Hochschulentwicklungsplan, HEP], entitled “Creating a viable future", comprises the development plan drawn up by the university for the years 2021 to 2024, in accordance with the Hessian Higher Education Act and taking into account the 2021-2025 Hessian Higher Education Pact. Based on Goethe University's vision and mission, the plan considers the entire range of university mandates and activities, outlining key challenges as well as formulating goals and initial strategic measures to achieve them.

Goethe University Frankfurt's strategic University Development Plan will be updated in the course of 2024. This participatory process will take into account not only the status quo of the university itself as well as developments in the national and international academic and science policy environment, but also existing mission statements and action plans, including the mission statement for teaching, the university's understanding of sustainability, its mission statement for internationalization and the equal opportunities and inclusion action plans.
