Plan Development

Updating UMD's Strategic Plan

Spring 2017 - Data Collection

Fall 2017 - Draft Review and Additional Input

The Chancellor and Vice Chancellors reviewed data from the Spring 2017 collection processes and presented an initial draft of the updated Strategic Plan to the Strategic Planning and Budget (SPB) Committee for input on October 2, 2017. Subsequent drafts were reviewed by SPB as well as the Chancellor’s Leadership Council, senior leadership team, Council of Deans and Academic Administrators, the Council of Student Life Directors, the UMD Student Association, Faculty Senate, and the Chancellor’s Advisory Board. Based on campus constituency input, the Chancellor approved the updated vision, values, and goals in December 2017 to set the foundation for developing initiatives and measures during Spring 2018.


Spring 2018 - Development of Initiatives 

The EVCAA coordinated the initiative development process by identifying key items that emerged from the spring 2017 open forums and by seeking input from groups and individuals across campus. Initiatives were provided by members of the Chancellor's Leadership Council; the Council of Deans and Academic Administrators; the Council of Student Life Directors; Faculty Senate; the Graduate Programs Committee; the Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities Subcommittee; and the Campus Change Team. The Strategic Planning and Budget Committee endorsed the list of initiatives on April 27, 2018.  


2018-19 - Ideas for Objectives & KPIs 

Progress on the Strategic Plan update process was deliberately slowed while the University of Minnesota Presidential search was conducted. During the year, the Strategic Planning & Budget Committee recommended a list of groups across campus to provide ideas for campus-level objectives and key performance indicators. In addition to many of these groups providing input, Vice Chancellor units and other groups submitted ideas as well.  


2019-20 - Review of Objectives & KPIs 

Once President Gabel confirmed UMD's Strategic Plan update was appropriate and consistent with the System's Strategic Planning process, the Chancellor presented a draft set of campus objectives and key performance indicators for comment. Input will be be reviewed spring 2020, and the objectives and indicators will be finalized.
