The 2018-19 academic year marks the midpoint of the 2016-21 long-range plan. Administration designed this year’s action plan to set the university on a course to accomplish the key objectives of the long-range plan over the next three years.
Much has changed for this year, and Missouri State must respond. We have new leaders in Jefferson City. The state is focused on infrastructure and workforce development. Legislators are discussing equity in state funding. High school graduation numbers and international concerns predict a slowing of our enrollment growth. The university’s continued growth will be strategic, in programs and fields with strong ties to the state’s workforce needs.
This action plan sets Missouri State on a path to seize the opportunities that exist and continue an upward trajectory in a changing landscape.
