Strategic Planning 2010

The current planning process, underway since 2002, began with review of the 1998 strategic goals published in Pathways to the Future. Review of campus accomplishments and challenges guided the development of the 2003/4 and 2004/5 annual goals.

Strategic planning during 2003-2004 included developing a draft vision statement and university values, completing a SWOT analysis, developing an assessment plan and using the annual goals to guide budgetary decisions. Information gleaned from these efforts, regional trends and the CSU Stanislaus Regional Impact Report will serve as the foundation for development of the next five year plan.

Culminating strategic planning efforts this year will define the new five-year University strategic plan 2005 to 2010. Documents on the right provide critical elements and the campus review schedule.
