The UMSL Strategic Plan 2018-2023 details a bold and expansive plan to guide our collective actions for the next five years and beyond.

Our plan solidifies UMSL’s commitment to the five Missouri compacts for excellence in the 21st century: Student Success, Research and Creative Works, Community Engagement and Economic Development, Inclusive Excellence, and Planning, Operations and Stewardship. Our six core values are an integral part of each compact. Trust, inclusion, innovation, access, success and engagement each support and are strengthened by the specific goals we have set. While no plan can be fully exhaustive or anticipate perfectly what the future may hold, every effort has been made to ensure that our goals and actions are transparent and supported by relevant, comprehensive data that is ambitious yet realistic. We submit this plan with the ultimate goal of positioning UMSL for a future that is full of progress and continued excellence.
