ATU 2025: Strategic Plan
Background and resources

 

Guided by its vision and mission statements, Arkansas Tech University seeks to invest the collective energy and talents of its faculty, staff and students in fulfilling our promise to strive for the betterment of our region, Arkansas, the nation and the world.

Over a period of three years, ATU will continue the pursuit of that promise by developing and enacting a strategic plan that prioritizes its role as a teaching university that supports student access and success.

Defined and measurable goals of "ATU 2025: Strategic Plan" will fall under the following four categories, which will collectively serve as a framework for the creation and execution of the plan:

Purpose (Vision and Mission)
Products (Programs and Delivery)
Partnerships (Internal and External)
Profitability (Institutional Support)

This framework is adapted from an article entitled "Time For a Strategy Refresh for Your University," which was written by Paul N. Friga and published in the November/December 2021 issue of Trusteeship magazine. 

The strategic plan developed through an inclusive process that will engage faculty, staff and students during the spring 2022 semester went before the ATU Board of Trustees for review and adoption on June 16, 2022. 

The implementation phase of "ATU 2025: Strategic Plan" will begin in fall 2022 and continue through the spring 2025 semester.

Annual updates on ATU's progress toward achieving the goals within its strategic plan will be developed and disseminated to stakeholders.
