The University of Nebraska at Omaha will host an important Strategic Planning Forum on Tuesday, May 13, with a focus on Maintaining Maverick Momentum by Supporting Ongoing Initiatives.
The Forum will take place from 10 A.M. - 12:30 P.M. and be streamed virtually.
One of the most important foundations of any campus is its strategic plan. Without one, we can lose sight of our goals, mission, and place in our broader community.
At UNO, our Strategic Plan is based around four goals: (1) Student Centeredness, (2) Academic Excellence, (3) Community Engagement, and (4) Institutional Quality. To support these broad goals, the campus launched the Completion Imperative (Goal 1); the UNO Big Ideas (2 and 3); and the UNO Strategic Investment in Social Justice, Inequality, Race and Class (1, 2, 3, 4).
Now it’s time to take each of these priorities to the next level, and we need your help to do it. For each of these initiatives, we want to come together to collaboratively explore how can we all work together to expand their reach.
The UNO community is animated by the Maverick Spirit of collaboration, both across the campus and within our communities. Having spent these last three years introducing and defining these efforts, the May 13 Strategic Planning Forum: Maintaining Maverick Momentum by Supporting Ongoing Initiatives will allow us to come together and find ways for we can each be involved as we continue advancing these efforts.
With that in mind, please mark your calendars for Thursday, May 13, from 10 A.M. – 12:30 P.M. for the May Strategic Planning Forum, where we will discuss the following topics:
