We begin the 2020-21 academic year during a pandemic. We will spend significant time and resources this year on the university’s efforts to manage the pandemic’s impacts on our community’s health as well as the university’s operations and finances.
This will be the last year under our existing long-range plan. We will focus in the coming year on closing out goals under the existing plan and developing a new plan for the next five years.
We will focus on academic opportunities and career initiatives as we continue to equip students with the education and skills they need to succeed in a modern world. We will also focus on diversity, equity and inclusion in light of a national conversation about race and information current and former students, faculty and staff have shared about the experiences they had at Missouri State.
