University Strategic Plan

Western Carolina University's strategic plan, "2020 Vision: Focusing on our Future" was completed in 2012 and unanimously approved by the WCU Board of Trustees in August of that year. An update to the plan was completed early in 2018 and adopted by the Board of Trustees in June. The original plan's original six strategic directions were expanded to seven. The strategic directions of the existing plan are currently under review and refinement to ensure WCU has the right goals and initiatives for the times we are in.
