Charting Our Course successfully captures our hopes and aspirations for the next 25 years of UW Tacoma. It builds on our past while articulating a bold new shared Vision and Mission honed through dozens of meetings, forums, surveys, and discussions with more than 1,200 people.
The plan sharpens our focus on:
UW Tacoma’s compelling urban-serving mission
Our passion for access as the central value of UW Tacoma
Our commitment to meaningful, measurable results
Under six strategic priorities - Students, Communities, Scholarship, Equity, Culture, and Growth - the plan lays out Impact Goals with Indicators that will help us gauge our progress.
From Planning to Action
To guide implementation of Charting Our Course over the years ahead, Chancellor Pagano formed the Strategic Plan Coordinating Committee. Leading the committee is Joe Lawless, Chief Strategy Officer. The Coordinating Committee is broadly representative of campus and committed to co-creating a process that integrates Charting Our Course into the fabric of UW Tacoma’s operations and culture.
Members will help prioritize and support unit-level and campus-level initiatives, and evaluate plan progress. Their initial focus is on identifying, celebrating, and optimizing existing plan-aligned work.
