UNCW’s strategic plan is being implemented during a period of change, with new leadership anticipated for appointment in 2015. The current strategic action plan (links below) is a dynamic working document. It incorporates major elements from previous strategic planning, includes sample measures, draws on broad campus input during the period over which it was developed, and features maps to the statewide UNC Strategic Directions document (also linked below). During 2014-15, a key campus priority will be the integration of the strategic action plan and the university’s unified budget process. To provide the background and context for current planning efforts, links to earlier strategic planning documents also are provided below.
