Description

Pratt Institute is one of the world’s leading colleges of art, design, and architecture. On the cusp of its 125th anniversary, the Brooklyn-based institution retained TWG to guide a comprehensive strategic planning process that would drive the school’s educational mission and vision for the next decade. TWG’s inclusive planning process sought advice from all stakeholders and engaged hundreds of faculty members, administrators, students, alumni, and trustees. The goal was to shape a bold vision for growth that was aligned with Brooklyn’s rapidly emerging creative economy. TWG’s final report provided the school’s Strategic Planning Committee with a detailed set of implementation strategies, initiatives, and tactics that could be deployed over a five-year period. Prior to conducting this strategic planning process, TWG had assisted Pratt Institute with two other major initiatives—one that focused on institutional sustainability and the other that centered on enhancing the resources and fundraising capacity of its community development arm.
