Strategic Goal: Ensure Academic Excellence

Adapt the USNA academic program to satisfy anticipated Navy and Marine Corps needs in the first two decades of the 21st century.
  • Focus the midshipman academic program on achieving specific learning outcomes and implement a system of assessing how well graduates are achieving those outcomes
  • Evaluate the core curriculum and adjust as necessary to ensure midshipmen are prepared academically for the challenges they will face in the early years of their military service
  • Evaluate academic majors to help prepare graduates for effective service as officers in the 21st century Navy and Marine Corps
  • Enhance midshipman opportunities to develop their understanding of the world; its peoples; their history, cultures, religions and languages in order to better understand political, economic and military trends
  • Attract, retain and develop sufficient high quality military and civilian faculty members to achieve and maintain USNA at a student/faculty ratio between 7 and 8 to 1, with military officers making up 50 percent (5 percent) of the total faculty
  • Leverage educational technology and how people learn to enhance our ability to improve midshipman learning
  • Provide sufficient well qualified support staff and effective administrative support services to ensure that faculty and midshipmen spend no more than 5 percent of their time (an average of 2 hours per week over a semester) on the administrative tasks supporting the academic program
  • Assess the adequacy of academic facilities and address identified needs as part of the Facilities Master Plan
