The University’s Mission, Vision, and Core Values were approved by the Board of Regents in June 2013 after obtaining extensive input from the campus community. The Strategic Plan was finalized in 2015.
The University always intended to update the 2015 Strategic Plan because it is a dynamic roadmap for the University’s future. That update process launched in 2019, paused during the COVID-19 pandemic, and was completed in 2021.. The update process included extensive research, focus groups and surveys, and regular campus updates. The process resulted in refining the University’s three strategic priorities and developing specific and measurable goals & outcomes consistent with those priorities.
