What is Strategic Planning

University strategic planning is a comprehensive and forward-looking process through which academic institutions define their long-term vision, goals, and priorities. It involves a systematic assessment of internal strengths and weaknesses, external opportunities and threats, and an analysis of the evolving educational landscape. By engaging stakeholders, including faculty, students, staff, and often external partners, universities craft a strategic roadmap that outlines strategies for academic programs, research initiatives, resource allocation, infrastructure development, and other key areas. The aim of university strategic planning is to guide decision-making, resource utilization, and growth efforts in alignment with the institution’s mission, fostering adaptability and competitiveness in an ever-changing educational environment.
