Choosing Promise - Adopted 2019 -- Amended 2023
In 2019, the university adopted its strategic plan, called “Choosing Promise,” articulates the university’s strategic direction and will serve as its roadmap through 2024.
These are minimally- or non-substantive changes that update the plan through 2026. They extend or remove timelines for many of the metrics and actions to reflect the ongoing attention MSU is devoting. A word or phrase was changed to better reflect how the university is implementing the metric or action.
Notation of those metrics or actions that the university has accomplished, which allows the university to focus more intently on those it has not yet accomplished. Metrics achieved will be monitored in the interest of continuous improvement.
A few metrics or actions were tied to time-bound understanding, technologies, or environmental factors that have changed in the intervening years. One of these no longer serves the Goal or larger Intentional Focus. The priority on this metric was lowered in favor of achieving the remaining metrics and actions.
Intentional Focus 1: Transformational Learning
Intentional Focus 2: Scholarship That Improves Lives
Intentional Focus 3: Expanding Engagement
