2018-2023 Proposed Strategic Plan

Since October 2016, the University Strategic Planning and Budgeting Committee (SPBC), convened by President Schmoke, has worked to develop a new strategic plan that will take effect January 2018.

This strategic plan recognizes the need to create a financially sustainable business model to achieve our goals and reflects extensive analysis and community input. It was developed by the University Strategic Planning and Budgeting Committee (SPBC) in conjunction with and informed by our 2017 MSCHE Self-Study and specific task force work, including the Strategic Enrollment Plan, the Student Retention and Success Plan, the Strategic Analysis of Academic Programs, and the forthcoming Diversity Plan. All plans are available on the planning website.
