Like other University of Missouri System campuses, we have been asked to demonstrate our impact on the State through an accelerated planning process focused on compacts. Specifically, we are tasked with developing goals around the five UM System compacts:
- Excellence in Student Success
- Excellence in Research and Creative Works
- Excellence in Engagement and Outreach
- Inclusive Excellence
- Excellence in Planning, Operations and Stewardship
During spring 2018, we hosted an in-person forum and collected feedback through an online survey about a first draft of MU’s response to the compacts. During the summer, we incorporated much of that feedback and worked with stakeholder groups to develop a second draft of the plan. We sought feedback from faculty, staff and students on the second draft of the plan in late August and early September 2018. This feedback will be incorporated into a final draft to be presented to the UM Curators on Sept. 7.
Later this fall, Provost Latha Ramchand will convene a representative group to advise us as we move toward the goals outlined in the strategic plan.
