4 things you absolutely need to know
Last week we had the most well-attended State of the University Address in recent memory. If you weren't able to make it in person, you can review the script and watch a video of the presentation here.
In addition to sharing great news about our enrollment growth and increases in research funding, much of my presentation was focused on our strategic plan. A new website, strategicplan.mst.edu, provides an overview of the plan and allows you to navigate between a high-level overview and an up-close look at the details.
This dynamic plan, which has been ratified by the Board of Curators, is the result of input from thousands and represents more than a year of work and study. It will set our course for the next seven years and beyond and is already changing how we do business at Missouri S&T. You can download the full plan, updated Sept. 9, under the "Plan" section of the strategic planning website.
Still, I know there is a lot of information to absorb. So let me boil it down to four things you absolutely need to know about the plan.
1. No other facet of our strategic plan is a higher
Under the new structure, the position of vice provost for academic affairs will be eliminated. Two new vice provost and dean positions will provide administrative oversight of S&T's academic programs. In addition, the university plans to create a vice chancellor for global and strategic partnerships. Get the details here.
I hope that you, as a member of Miner Nation, commit this strategy to memory and share it when you're telling others what S&T is all about. Better yet, please bookmark or favorite strategicplan.mst.edu and share it with friends and colleagues.
