The MNU Strategy Map provides a visual format for the Building Foundations plan and demonstrates the interdependent nature of its primary components.
Through focus groups and campus dialogues four themes emerged as key elements of the plan:
- Transforming Lives
- Delivering Excellence
- Strengthening Enrollment
- Building Resources
These themes and objectives were reviewed, refined and affirmed by “Theme Teams,” the Strategic Planning Steering Committee, the Board of Trustees, and the President’s Cabinet prior to final approval by the Board of Trustees.
Sixteen strategic objectives are categorized into four perspectives within the themes to reflect how the plan will impact the various levels and functions of the organization. Expanded organizational capacity; improved internal processes and the stewardship of financial resources are foundational in impacting all university stakeholders through a focus on mission integrity, academic opportunity, student success and the quality of the MNU experience for faculty, staff and students.
Each strategic objective is supported by specific initiatives that will support and achieve the desired outcomes.
