In the fall of 2018, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign announced its new strategic plan, “The Next 150.” Now is an opportune time for Student Affairs to engage in its own strategic planning process that will build upon the campus’ plan and define our role in shaping the Illinois experience. Our university and our division are among the best in higher education, a good foundation to build upon, indeed.
The Student Affairs strategic plan will be progressive and focused on transformative learning experiences, student success, and service to our local and global communities. In addition, the final product, as well as the planning process, will be reflective of our shared values: inclusivity, transparency, collaboration, and excellence. The process will incorporate the ideas of our entire Student Affairs community, and those with whom we collaborate closely across campus, in reevaluating our vision, mission, values, goals, initiatives, and metrics, and in creating a roadmap leading to accomplishment.
