UND’s strategic planning process, which began in February, continues over the summer and will be presented to campus by President Armacost in January.

“The strategic plan must reflect great aspiration while focusing on excellence in education and research, building a sense of community both on and off campus, and creating a sense of creativity and innovation across all of UND,” Armacost said when he launched the process.

The plan will be a roadmap to help UND move forward and to be successful in the future, while meeting the needs of the University community, state, and beyond.

Co-chairs Jim Mochuruk and Lynette Krenelka, along with committee members and seven workgroups, are analyzing data and feedback from the campus and greater communities. They’re identifying recommendations around institutional strengths, and are also reviewing and revising UND’s mission, vision, and core values based on feedback.

The campus and greater community are invited to take part and share feedback at upcoming events as the plan is finalized. That should be complete by the end of July.
