In January of 2016, members of the Strategic Planning Steering Committee and associated subcommittees began the development of the current draft of the Strategic Plan, as well as revisions to the University’s Mission Statement, Vision Statement, and the composition of Core Values. The campus community has provided ongoing feedback on the strategic plan through on-campus sessions and an online forum, and the plan has been vetted with multiple stakeholder groups internal and external to campus.
The resulting strategic plan defines areas of emphasis for today’s modern university, but is deeply rooted in the university’s 110 year history as an institution that is dedicated to the preparation of students, teaching excellence, the creation and application of knowledge, and engagement within campus and outreach into the communities we serve. The strategic plan represents the latest evolution of our institutional mission and focuses our efforts on meeting four strategic goals:
- Expanding High-Impact Teaching and Learning Experiences
- Transforming Campus Connections
- Cultivating Community Engagement with Intentionality
- Promoting Enhanced Stewardship
