MUS Strategic Plan 2014

Strategic Planning

The Montana University System Strategic Plan is the primary planning document of the Board of Regents. The Plan sets forth an agenda for higher education in Montana by delineating the strategic directions, goals, and objectives that guide the Montana University System (MUS).

In July 2006, after several years of study, public dialogue, and internal deliberations, the Board of Regents approved the Strategic Plan.  Since then, updates have occurred annually, including revisions to strategic initiatives as well as a refreshing of the data within each goal.  (Link to complete document:  MUS Strategic Plan 2014)
