Our Strategic Plan will be advanced through the realization of four specific goals identified as essential to furthering our mission. These goals were developed as a result of a comprehensive evaluation of our shared values, vision and mission. An internal and external Environmental Scan was conducted to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the university while also discovering opportunities and challenges that influence our competitive position.
