Signature Programs

To shepherd this vision, a new 10-year strategic plan was developed.  As part of the process for implementation of the Keck School's new 10-year strategic plan, the Research Leadership Committee identified key research development priorities that simultaneously served as a bridge to both available resources and external funding opportunities.  Specifically, a set of Signature Programs was designated.  In the coming years, these Programs will play a pivotal role in helping the KSOM to fulfill its vision. Learn More >>
