Please note that Highlands University Strategic Planning Committee has selected five strategic goals based on extensive feedback from faculty, staff, students, and community members:

Goal 1: Teach and mentor students to integrate a broad range of academic skills, a breadth and depth of curricular knowledge, and an interdisciplinary understanding.

Goal 2: Inspire students to action through environments that foster scholarship and produce graduates equipped to address regional and global issues.

Goal 3: Engage with and serve our communities for mutually beneficial exchanges of knowledge, services and resources.  

Goal 4: Advance excellence in diversity, equity and inclusion policies and practices. 

Goal 5:  Be a comprehensive educational provider for all students including traditional, non-traditional, online, distance, community, and lifelong learners. 

We are now proposing 7-10 objectives under each goal to eventually provide more detail to the strategic plan.
