About UNCG Tomorrow

In late September, 2008, Chancellor Linda P. Brady appointed approximately 70 faculty, staff, students, alumni, and community members to the Strategic Planning Committee (SPC). Chancellor Brady charged the SPC to develop "a value-driven, outcome-based, transformative plan." Drawing on a document developed by the Planning Preparation Committee (A Bridge between UNCG Today and UNCG Tomorrow, July 31, 2008) and with guidance from Provost David H. Perrin, the SPC developed the the UNCG Strategic Plan 2009-2014. The Strategic Planning Committee endorsed a plan draft on March 30, 2009. Afterwards, all campus leadership groups endorsed the UNCG Strategic Plan 2009-2014, and the Chancellor approved it on May 1, 2009. All campus leadership groups, including the Board of Trustees, endorsed the Vision and Mission Statement during fall 2008, Chancellor Brady approved it on December 15, 2008, and the UNC Board of Governors approved it on November 13, 2009.

During 2009-2010 and 2010-2011, teams from multiple units and divisions built on the work of the Strategic Planning Committee and developed plans for the implementation of 19 of the 29 goals. The work of the teams that produce implementation reports is supported by the Implementation Resource Support Team which consists of key representatives from across UNCG. Divisional and unit plans to support the UNCG Strategic Plan have also been developed and departmental and office plans are under development.

The 2010-2011 Strategic Plan Report shows how divisions and units supported the plan during that academic year and documents continuous improvement in institutional effectiveness resulting from their work. During 2012, senior leadership and shared governance groups revisited the plan, assessing progress and modifying it to reflect progress made, emerging issues, and resources available. Plans for the implementation of three additional goals were developed during the 2012-2013 academic year, but due to financial constraints they will not be initiated at this time. The implementation plans for two additional goals are under development during 2013-2014. The concise version of the revised plan is available by clicking here, a version listing the initiatives developed to support goals is available by clicking here, and the Complete UNCG Strategic Plan 2009-2014, including descriptions of the initiatives planned to support the 19 goals under implementation is available by clicking here.
