Strategic Plan: Impact 2025 and Beyond

Transform, Translate, Transcend

President Dr. Richard Walker

Message from the President

University of Houston-Clear Lake is on the move! Our Impact 2025 and Beyond Strategic Plan is a complete framework for envisioning a dynamic future for our students, our faculty, our staff, our community, and our world. I invite you to review the plan in the sections and pages that follow.

The strategic plan is a real-time roadmap that provides guidance and clarity regarding UH-Clear Lake's priorities, objectives, and overall direction for the next five years. The plan is intentional and strategic and provides guidance that will impact student success and elevate UHCL's profile as a thought leader. It creates the pathways towards collaboration with community partners to provide innovative opportunities to create a more inclusive culture for our students on campus and throughout the region. Our strategic plan is designed to be implemented in stages, resulting in UHCL being ranked in the top 25 public regional comprehensive universities in the western United States (US News and World Reports rankings).

A great deal of work on the strategic plan has taken place since spring of 2019, when work began on the vision, mission, and values, followed by the initial efforts to develop a university-wide Strategic Plan. Since the initial efforts, over 500 faculty, staff, students, alumni, and community partners have participated. The new mission statement was approved by the Board of Regents in 2019.

The strategic plan will be implemented using our formula for success. We call this our Three Ts approach. We TRANSFORM student lives through experiential learning and workforce readiness, using highly credentialed faculty with real-world experience, focusing upon diverse communities, first-generation students, and lifelong learners. We TRANSLATE knowledge to actionable solutions and interventions by generating and applying research and discovery learning through multidisciplinary approaches to solve crucial social and scientific problems. We TRANSCEND boundaries to collaborate across industry and community partnerships to develop our economy, our educational systems, our physical and social ecology, and our quality of life. In sum, this is what we do.

In closing, I wish to thank all who helped to set the strategic vision for our university. Our successes over the past 48 years would not have been possible without the confidence and support of our dedicated community of educational enthusiasts. Go Hawks!
Sincerely,

Richard Walker, Ed.D.
President
