The strategic plan will frame priorities for the University for the next five years. The listed goals are to increase experiential learning opportunities, increase the graduation rate, become a "24/7" campus, provide leadership in the region,increase the diversity of faculty, staff, and students, and preserve and nurture the campus community.
Dr. Katherine Draughon, executive director of the Office of Planning, Research, and Assessment, led the University's strategic planning process starting in summer 2009 and sought input from trustees, faculty, staff, students, alumni, and others in the community.
The next step in the planning process is to clarify ways to achieve the goals. President Bennett said, "The future holds challenges, but also great opportunities. USI will continue to serve the common good as our students shape the future through learning and innovation."
