Project Soar 2025, the University’s strategic plan, supports the campus community’s shared vision: to be nationally recognized as a premier public university, serving 25,000 students with programs from bachelor’s to PhD, providing our students with a welcoming, supportive and responsive experience that enables post-graduate success, continuing to be affordable and accessible, acclaimed for our research contributions, valued for our community and business partnerships, fiscally sound and nimble in our business practices, and diverse in our students and employees.

The plan is structured around three guiding “Pillars” or themes, each pointing toward and promoting student success at every level of the institution. It is built on the foundation of an entrepreneurial approach that empowers us to be persistently innovative and demonstrably effective in promotion of every policy and practice that will improve academic quality, promote student success and augment institutional communication and efficiency.
