The overall goal of the Global Strategy SIT is to achieve international recognition as the leading aeronautical university through strategic global engagement with business and academia. The plan focuses on two primary strategies to meet this goal:

  1. Environment: Provide an educational and work environment that develops globally competent staff, students and faculty who understand, and excel in, an international discipline.
  2. Locations: Expand ERAU’s global brand by identifying select locations for expansion.
