Learning at the Center

During spring semester 2020, academic affairs leadership determined that the new academic strategic plan should focus on teaching and learning and its centrality to the mission of UW-Eau Claire. After a pause for the pandemic, and with the assistance of the Academic Strategic Plan Advisory Group those themes and proposed action steps were shared with a wide variety of stakeholders in academic affairs during spring semester 2021 and after revisions, in spring semester 2022. 

We are pleased to share the 2025 Academic Strategic Plan.

The plan:

  • Focuses on teaching and learning, broadly defined, as the core of our institutional mission
  • Describes one loop in an iterative cycle that moves us forward toward meeting our mission
  • Identifies critical steps we will take before 2025 but does not attempt to identify all the work carried out in Academic Affairs
  • Provides space for all faculty and staff to contribute to one or more plan goals
  • Assumes collaboration within academic affairs, with governance, and across divisions

The 2025 Academic Strategic Plan is centered on four main goals:

Goal 1: Further distinguish the UW-Eau Claire teaching and learning experience

Goal 2: Meaningfully engage every student in the complete academic experience

Goal 3: Develop and support innovative academic programming

Goal 4: Examine policies and procedures to promote equity, efficiency and meaningful work across the division

Faculty and staff are already moving forward on projects to support these goals and we encourage all units and individuals in Academic Affairs to use the plan to guide their work. 

This page will be updated to reflect plan initiatives and progress toward meeting plan goals. 

Special thanks to the Academic Strategic Plan Advisory Group for their extended work gathering data and providing feedback on the plan as it was developed.
