Planning for Tomorrow Today

Higher education is in the midst of unprecedented change — marked by robust competition, innovations in instruction and course delivery, volatile economic and political forces, and escalating public expectations and scrutiny.

We acknowledge and enthusiastically accept our responsibility to respond directly and forcefully to this challenging and changing environment. Our 2025 Strategic Plan focuses on three core areas, and its individual components are understood and embraced as a community-wide responsibility requiring the coordinated efforts of all trustees, administrators, faculty, and staff to ensure its success.
