SMU Strategic Plan
St. Mary's University has unveiled its new 'Strategic Plan 2017' following a comprehensive planning process that took place over the past year.
The university said the process involved 900 persons from the university's network of stakehiolders in a five-phased process. The result was the formation of a new vision for SMU as a top-tier, national university.
With the adoption of the Strategic Plan 2017 during its Centennial Year, St. Mary's is charting a new course for the future by strategically aligning the university's operations with its mission and vision. Over the next five years SMU will undertake new initiatives and new thinking with a distinctive commitment to teaching and learning, ethical leadership, the sciences, and online learning.
University President Brother William Mann said the plan is the next step in a process to launch the university's second century, building on the success of the its century.
