Because the current strategic plan concludes in 2019, MSU is beginning work on the next strategic plan now in order to provide continuity of direction and purpose with no gaps between plans. Through a series of stakeholder listening sessions, the Strategic Planning Committee has discovered some common themes and desires for the future of Montana State and drafted proposed language for our Mission, Vision, and Core Principles. We invite you to consider these items of interest, and to share your feedback with us. Committee members are eager to hear your thoughts and can be reached individually or at strategicplan@montana.edu.
