The community is invited to help shape WNMU’s 2018-2021 strategic plan.
Western New Mexico University is reviewing its three-year strategic plan and forming a new one for 2018-2021. The leadership is looking for input about the university’s mission, vision and goals.
“During the past three years, we have started several new initiatives that influence our future and identity,” said Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. William Crocker.
Among those enterprises, he listed the applied liberal arts and sciences designation; emphases on rural health and education; developing external funding; growing enrollment and retaining students; broadening programs to support workforce needs; expanding international connections; involving the Gila in curricula and activities; strengthening WNMU’s role as a cultural center; and continuing to provide quality education with a commitment to inclusion and diversity.
“In an atmosphere of sustainable challenges, these initiatives and all the things we do as faculty and staff continue our end purpose of serving students,” Crocker said.
And now the university community’s participation is important as WNMU develops its 2018-2021 strategic plan. “An important component is consideration of our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats,” Crocker said, inviting faculty, staff, students and the public to join the conversation about the university’s future.
Please lend WNMU your thoughts, knowledge, and concerns by completing the SWOT form by Nov. 30, 2017.
