Strategic Plan

Dear Faculty, Staff, Students, Alumni, and Friends of UNCW,

The development of a Strategic Plan is critical to the success of institutions, and certainly for institutions of higher learning.

As you explore this website, please take this time to learn about the process we are utilizing to develop UNCW’s Strategic Plan. Starting with a draft that was shared with faculty, students and staff leadership as well as the Board of Trustees, our expanded Leadership Council is now addressing questions of vision, mission, values, and strategic priorities. Seven teams are at work and as they make progress, they will be holding open forums so that the whole university can participate in the process through idea generation and vetting.

Thank you in advance for your contributions and let’s make this Strategic Plan the pathway for an even greater UNCW.
