Inclusive Development Process
The new strategic planning and visioning process launched in September 2014 involves an 18-month inclusive process
designed to gather input from university stakeholders. The process is designed to create a university-wide plan that is
vision-focused rather than operationally focused. Such a plan is ideal for setting the direction and distinguishing UNCG
from other institutions. Together, we will answer the important questions, “Who are we?” and
“Who do we want to be?” Our discoveries will enable us to create a university-level roadmap for the future.
From Discovery to Action Steps
Once the university-wide plan is in place, detailed operational plans with concrete action steps and precise metrics
will be developed in our units and divisions. These operational plans will show each unit’s linkage to the larger plan
along with a path to how they will contribute to achieving our university goals.
Please read the overview of the planning process and timeline. We encourage you
to check back frequently for updates on the process and new planning and visioning resources.
Thank you for joining your UNCG community in creating promising steps forward. Together, we have an opportunity to
influence the future direction of our great university and strengthen our commitment to providing a challenging,
supportive and engaged university that ensures student success at its highest level.
