Purpose Made Possible

UW-Stevens Point’s vision for the future

For more than 125 years, UW-Stevens Point has served our students and our communities with pride, preparing our graduates for success in life and their careers.  

As we begin a new decade, we are also embarking on a new chapter in the history of our university. We have planned our course in a thoughtful, strategic and inclusive way. With input from faculty, staff, students and community partners, we developed the vision and broad goals of our five-year strategic plan for the university:

Purpose Made Possible: Determination to lead the way (PDF file)

The vision and goals of this plan were approved by the UW-Stevens Point Common Council in April 2020 and affirmed in April 2021 following revisions to align three strategic imperatives of Chancellor Gibson: academic excellence, inclusive excellence, and enrollment and growth.

More recently, we established objectives, strategies, and tactics for our planned Year-One activities and adopted metrics by which we will measure our success. The process is being guided by executive sponsors and implementation teams and we now are working to accomplish our objectives for Year-One.

We will realize our vision of UW-Stevens Point in 2025 by focusing our work in four major themes. We have created goals within each of these themes. In the work ahead, teams will continue to develop the strategies, tactics and metrics by which we will achieve these goals.
