New Strategic Plan Now Online

SOCORRO, N.M. April 22, 2015 – The official 2015-2020 Strategic Plan is now online. The Board of Regents approved the draft earlier in April and the document can be accessed at

In late 2013, university President Dr. Daniel H. Lopez formed a committee of faculty, staff, students, alumni and community members to develop a new mission statement, vision statement and institutional values.

“The Strategic Plan is a pathway that can help the university realize many of its goals,” Lopez said. “This is a plan and not a concrete conclusion on every aspect of the university’s growth and advancement, but it is a good roadmap that should lead the university over the coming years to be more effective in teaching, research, public service and economic development. I want to thank all who participated to make it a first-rate plan that should serve the university for years to come.”

The document also includes goals, tasks and an implementation plan. The committee held a series of public meetings throughout 2014 to gather input from all constituents.  

Printed copies of the main portion of the plan will be available in May.
