- The FY 2023–27 institutional strategic plan builds on the extraordinary evolution and unique strengths of The Huntington—particularly the past three decades of successful revitalization and growth. In developing this strategic plan, we gathered input through inclusive discussions with members of The Huntington’s key constituencies over several months. The plan reflects the collective input of The Huntington’s staff, volunteers, scholars, members, collaborators, senior staff, and members of the Board of Governors and Board of Trustees, who were generous with their time, forthright with their recommendations, and are deeply committed to the future of The Huntington. A Steering Committee ably helped coordinate and guide the process, and the Board of Trustees adopted the plan on Feb. 10, 2022.
- The plan works in concert with The Huntington’s Strategic Plan for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and it benefited, as well, from the findings and recommendations of an in-depth audience research project completed in 2021. Future divisional and operational plans will be aligned to this institutional strategic plan to ensure successful implementation.
- As a collections-based research and educational humanities institution with a public mission and a focus on the interpretation of history, and as stewards of 207 acres of botanical gardens and California landscape, The Huntington has an opportunity and responsibility to acknowledge that the institution is located on the historical homelands of Indigenous communities. The purpose of our Land Acknowledgment is to honor and respect those peoples and recognize their enduring relationship to the land.
