WSU System strategic plan, 2020-2025

Working together to plan WSU’s future

Help create the 2020-2025 system-wide strategic plan

Working together, the University community is in the process of creating a comprehensive strategic plan that will guide the evolution of the WSU system from 2020-2025. The 5-year plan will identify the ways in which the University can better serve the public good and meet the future needs of the state of Washington and beyond.

The system plan will reflect the vision identified in the Drive to 25 and align with other recent institutional planing efforts, including initiatives focused on Modernization, Campus Culture, Student Success, and strategic research priorities.

Faculty, staff, and students system-wide are invited and encouraged to help craft WSU’s future.



Update: Concept teams finish work; first draft of plan available early February

Four concept teams of faculty, staff, and students selected from throughout the system recently finished the drafting of goals, objectives, and strategies for the system strategic plan.

Each team focused on a theme identified as integral to the University’s future success:

Concept team 1: Research, Innovation, and Creativity
Concept team 2: Student Experience
Concept team 3: Outreach, Extension, Service, and Engagement
Concept team 4: Institutional Effectiveness, and Infrastructure

A writing team currently is drafting the first iteration of the strategic plan. The first draft of the plan will be available for public comment in early February.
