WestConn's Vision Statement

Western Connecticut State University capitalizes on its outstanding faculty and its location in the greater New York metropolitan area to create a diverse university community that— in its range of quality academic programs and in its enriching and supportive student-focused environment— is characteristic of New England’s best small private universities, but with much more affordable costs.

Vision Statement Elements Expressed as Strategic Initiatives







Introduction to the Strategic Planning Initiative

The process of developing a vision and a strategic plan for WestConn has been moving forward over the last two years.  During Year 1 (2004-2005), individuals and groups at the university and from all stakeholder groups were interviewed, and their responses were compiled as part of the Values and Visions process, designed to help clarify WestConn’s self-identity and perception while identifying key opportunities.  Major themes emerged in the areas of academics, community, identity, resources, and students.

Results were shared in a “town meeting” format, and the Extended President’s Advisory Committee (EPAC) and the University Planning and Budget Committee (UPBC) held a retreat in summer 2005 to analyze the data and to formulate next steps.
