Systemwide Strategic Plan
Work on the University of Minnesota Systemwide Strategic Plan began in 2016-17. Phase 1, led by Vice Provost Rebecca Ropers and then-Chancellor Stephen Lehmkuhle, was noteworthy for its high degree of consultation with stakeholders, resulting in the “Systemwide Strategic Framework,” adopted by the Board of Regents in June 2017. Phase 2 resulted in “Systemwide Strategic Priorities for 2018-19,” which the Board discussed at its September 2018 meeting within the context of the presidential transition. Phase 3, in fall 2019, involved broad consultation and presidential charges to System campuses and senior leaders to develop System Commitments, Goals and Action Items for presentation in winter/spring 2020. The Board approved MPact 2025, the University’s new Systemwide Strategic Plan in June 2020, as well as a refreshed University Progress Card and new U of M Dashboard in February 2021.
