DSA Strategic Plan

University of Houston-Clear Lake impacts our region through exceptional educational programs provided by engaged faculty and dedicated staff. We continue to build on that success by adding new programs and creating opportunities. We are expanding our 45-year commitment to opening doors to accessible education in exciting new ways with Impact 2025 and Beyond, the theme for our new strategic plan and the pathway to our future.

With the assistance of the new plan, we better understand our role and how we impact and educate future leaders.

Strategic Themes

UHCL’s strategic themes are value-based pillars that act as the foundation of the strategic plan. The Strategic Management Team, comprised of university, faculty senate and alumni leadership, worked together to define these themes as Educational Achievement, Inclusive Culture, Innovation through Collaboration and University Identity.

Division of Student Affairs Strategic Plan Priorities

UHCL has partnered with the Balanced Scorecard Institute to strategically plan for continuous improvement. Within the Division of Student Affairs, we have engaged with various stakeholders, including, but not limited to, employees, students, alumni and community partners, throughout the strategic planning process.

UHCL’s strategic plan, Impact 2025 and Beyond, will provide an effective framework that guides us toward a sustainable model for assessment and planning. As our institution and division grows, we are compelled to transform our institutional culture, practices and expectations to positively impact the communities we serve and influence.

In particular, division priorities align with university goals in areas related to organizational capacity, university processes, resource stewardship and students and stakeholders.
