Because the current strategic plan concludes in 2019, MSU has been developing the next strategic plan over the past year in order to provide continuity of direction and purpose with no gaps between plans. Through a series of stakeholder listening sessions, open design charrettes, emails, meetings, web feedback, and other campus and community engagement, the Strategic Planning Committee has written and posted several drafts reflecting common themes, desires for MSU’s future, and challenges we want to achieve.  We invite you to consider the drafts we have posted, and to share your feedback with us. Committee members are eager to hear your thoughts and can be reached individually or at

The plan will be submitted to University Council for first reading on October 3, and we expect a final reading and vote on November 7.
