Student Affairs Strategic Planning Process

Seeing a disconnect between the existing values and goals in the Division, and renewed directions from campus leadership, the UWM Division of Student Affairs began a new process of self-reflection and re-alignment in 2017. Beginning with the establishment of 5 core strategic initiatives, drafted by a diverse committee from across the Division, the work has evolved into a defining of methods and priorities for implementation of action steps. Seeing these action steps as the building blocks of a new method for providing students an exceptional campus experience, while providing UWM’s administration a clearer view of our student profile, student success, and how to achieve in the continuously shifting world of modern Higher Education.
