Campus Strategic Planning

There is no better time for UWM to be undertaking a large initiative like strategic planning.

This process will ensure that during these very challenging times for higher education, we will align our resources with programs that will help our campus grow and achieve our mission and vision. When completed, the strategic plan will become the roadmap for making decisions on the way we develop and implement programs and allocate resources to be successful.

Based on feedback gained from the June 2018 and March 2019 retreats, an update to the campus strategic directions is underway. Many of the documents linked on this page provide a historical perspective on the previous work done toward campus strategic planning.

Moving Forward. Together.
