The Office of Public Outreach (OPO) at the STScI was created to share the amazing discoveries of the Hubble Space Telescope with the American public. We are privileged to be the focal point of public attention for a storied NASA/ESA space science mission to which thousands of engineers, programmers, technicians, administrators and scientists have devoted their professional gifts. During the last five years we have developed a multitude of products and programs that have capitalized on the intense interest in Hubble to inform and inspire millions of Americans and many others around the globe.

At the end of its first five years of existence, and with a new management team in place, the time is right for a re-examination of priorities for OPO. Following considerable internal debate, and after much discussion with the external communities we serve, a new strategic plan for outreach has been produced. This paper presents a summary of the new plan.
