New Strategic Plan Draft Ready for Vetting by University Community

A new draft of Washington State University’s strategic plan for the next five years is completed and being circulated for feedback among faculty, staff, student leaders and other stakeholders throughout the institution.

The Strategic Plan draft is available for viewing and comment. In addition, the Provost’s Office and Strategic Plan Committee have held a series of focus group sessions with a variety of stakeholder groups and are holding public conversations on each of WSU’s four campuses. Many thanks to all who have participated already.
