VISION AND MISSION

Vision: Our vision is to be a diverse and inclusive regionally-based, nationally-recognized research, education and outreach center dedicated to solving pressing transportation and freight infrastructure problems and producing highly trained transportation professionals. We particularly focus on under-represented professionals – Hispanic, Native Americans, African Americans, Women and First-in-Family-to-Attend-College – capable of leading public and private sector efforts aimed at providing U.S. citizens a sustainable and resilient transportation system.

Mission: The SPTC mission is twofold: to develop comprehensive, cost-effective, and imminently implementable solutions to critical infrastructure-related issues facing the transportation systems of the region and the nation; and to prepare transportation professionals for leadership roles in professional and research careers in support of the nation’s transportation systems.
