The Marquette University Board of Trustees last week unanimously endorsed an updated version of the university’s strategic plan, Beyond Boundaries. Changes to the plan include a new goal theme, A Culture of Inclusion, and the addition of specific objectives and key performance indicators around each of the six major goal themes.
“Our trustees’ unanimous endorsement of the strategic plan is a tribute to the leadership of so many around campus to breathe new life into Beyond Boundaries,” said President Michael R. Lovell. “The significant progress we’re making is truly a team effort, and I’m excited to end the academic year on such a high note.”
A new website has launched to reintroduce the campus community to Beyond Boundaries. The site features a new landing page that provides a narrative overview of the plan, as well as examples of how the university is living the plan already. A slide presentation, video and downloadable flyer are also available on the landing page.
Further, pages for each of the six goal themes now include the objectives, as well as interactive dashboards to show progress on key performance indicators.
“The new website is not only critical to transparency and communicating to the campus community our progress on key initiatives, but it also seeks to inspire all of us to push Beyond Boundaries,” said Dr. Marya Leatherwood, vice provost for strategic and academic planning. “It’s also worth noting that a good strategic plan is fluid—it changes as our environment and our realities change. The beauty of a web-based tool like this is that it can evolve with the university and the strategic plan.”
