The final review of the University’s strategic plan has been completed, and the plan is in the process of being finalized for approval by the UT Board of Trustees.
Approximately 30 people provided comments on the plan in the two-week public review period in late April. As a result of comments received, a number of minor adjustments were made to the plan.
In several cases, language was altered to make the meaning clearer. Changes were made to better clarify how this plan dovetails with UT’s Diversity and Inclusion Plan, the Multi-Campus Plan, and the Strategic Enrollment Plan.
Other clarifications were made in the language around philanthropy, globalization, research and support of faculty research, as well as UT’s image.
The goal seeking to reduce the number of programs that require more than 120 credit hours to graduate also was rewritten for clarity.
No comments were made about the University’s new mission, vision and values statements.
A final copy of the plan will be available in mid to late June.
