Strategic Planning Progress

Oct. 28, 2019

UHCL Campus Community: 

As UHCL's Strategic Planning Leadership Team, we have made significant progress in our strategic planning process over the last few months. We recently engaged in a series of meetings and workshops, which has given faculty, staff, students and alumni a clearer understanding of the purpose, proposed changes and intended results of this process.

Between June and September, the Strategic Management Team and Theme Teams participated in two-day workshops to crystallize our mission, vision and values; outline our competition analysis; and formalize value propositions. After reviewing comments from the various Strategic Themes and Great Idea Forums, these groups were able to synthesize feedback from the various voices across the campus and refine our initial strategic themes: 

  • Educational Achievement
  • Inclusive Culture
  • Innovation Partners
  • University Identity

The Strategic Management Team reconvened on Oct. 3rd and 4th to review the work of the Theme Teams. Those notes will be moved to our next working group, the Objective Owners, in early November. The Objective Owners will begin the process of creating metrics for both strategic objectives and their initiatives. 

We recently learned that our mission, vision and values have officially been approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, which is the final step in that respective approval process. We are progressing in the right direction to ensure that UHCL has a solid foundation to propel our university into a successful future.

Thank you for your continued participation and support.
