    EWU Strategic Plan

    Goals for the Five-Year Strategic Plan

    Each focus area has a goal and a series of strategies that will be implemented over the five-year period. The "indicators of success" show how each goal will be measured. Each year, a campuswide annual action plan will be developed to guide individual actions that support these strategies, along with specific owners and metrics. All departments and programs will be involved in this process and annual actions will be published each fall. Hundreds of great ideas have already been submitted. By working together we will be inspiring the future for Eastern Washington University.

    1. Student Success

    Goal: To create an environment where students succeed at their highest level.

    Goal: Increase community engagement through active participation of students, staff and faculty with community groups, business, organizations and government.

    Community engagement builds recognition, fosters support and expands opportunities for students, faculty, staff
    and graduates as well as the communities we serve. A closer relationship with business, industry and communities
    improves EWU's ability to anticipate and respond to workforce and community needs.

    4. Visibility

    Goal: Continue to strengthen EWU's reputation by raising the visibility of EWU's high-quality academic programs, community engagement and innovation.

    EWU's reputation drives community and business engagement and support, our alumni relations, and most importantly, our enrollment for undergraduate and graduate programs. Expanded visibility and recognition of EWU's strengths and successes will drive internal and external perceptions of the university as an institution of choice.
