A team has been formed to develop a strategic plan for the Pullman campus.  The system strategic planning process that has occurred over the last two academic years has articulated a vision and high-level goals for the entire WSU system.  Campus and unit strategic plans will in turn present specific strategies that the campus/unit will use to contribute to some of the high-level goals in the system plan.

“As we put the finishing touches on the 2020-2025 WSU system strategic plan, it is the ideal time to begin the process of creating a strategic plan specific to WSU Pullman,” said university President Kirk Schulz. “The plan will be built around the principles and goals of the system plan while recognizing the distinct opportunities and responsibilities of WSU Pullman.”

The Pullman plan will identify the strengths, resources, and opportunities that exist on the Pullman campus and describe strategies for using these to help WSU achieve some of its high-level goals.  The Pullman strategic planning team will engage in substantial outreach to campus constituencies to help identify the unique attributes of the Pullman campus and shape the goals and priorities of the campus.  The team will complete its work in spring of 2021.
