Developing the 2016-21 Long-Range Plan

The University will develop the 2016-21 Long-Range Plan through a collaborative process that seeks broad input from stakeholders.

The Long-Range Plan is the guiding document that charts Missouri State’s path toward achieving its mission. The University utilizes its Long-Range Plan to decide how to allocate resources, determine what initiatives should be pursued, expanded and dissolved, and to make other strategic decisions.
