ACR Goals and Strategic Plan

The updated strategic plan adjusts the College's vision and brings increased focus to AI and data science.

Timeless Core Ideology

Core Ideology describes an organization’s consistent identity that transcends all changes related to its relevant environment. Core ideology consists of two elements:

  • Core Purpose – the organization’s reason for being
  • Core Organizational Values – essential and enduring principles that guide the behavior of an organization

Core Purpose: To serve patients and society by empowering members to advance the practice, science and professions of radiological care.

Core Organizational Values: Leadership / Integrity / Quality / Innovation

Goals and Objectives (3–5 years)

Goals represent outcome-oriented statements intended to guide and measure the organization’s future success. The achievement of each goal will move the organization towards the realization of its “Envisioned Future.”

Supporting objectives further clarify direction and describe what the organization wants to have happen; a descriptive statement of what constitutes success in measurable terms.
