Welcome to the UMD Strategic Planning web site!

In 2011, UMD created a Strategic Plan containing a refined mission, vision, statement of core values and goals for the university. The new vision, which helped to define a manageable set of action steps aligned with the goals, focused on students learning and growing through experience, critical inquiry, and interaction with other learners. Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2011 strategic planning process, and helped make those documents strong.

Because those documents were established to provide a guideline for moving UMD forward over a few years, a process to review and update the Strategic Plan began in January 2017. Our current planning process continues to be collaborative and involve the input of campus stakeholders. The updated plan will provide a renewed focus on the six institutional goals, include measures for each goal, and establish new strategic initiatives - advancing UMD toward future successes.
