Strategic Goals

As part of the strategic planning process the University underwent in 2012, the following eight goals were defined as a guide for all of campus to use as a guide to continue to move the University forward and provide an outstanding educational experience for our students.

  1. Equip students for meaningful lives and productive careers
  2. Improve academic programs continuously through rigorous assessment
  3. Grow targeted enrollment
  4. Enable exceptional student learning
  5. Develop the whole person through personalized attention
  6. Embrace professional, cultural,​ and intellectual diversity
  7. Provide experiential learning in every program
  8. Build best-in-class strategic resources
Each year, the University comes together to evaluate if the initiatives from the year before have moved campus closer to achieving the Big 8 Goals, and to plan for the coming year.
