Enhancing diversity, stewarding our resources and recognizing technology as a strategic asset
are all essential to the success of this strategic plan.
These initiatives are integral to each of the plan’s three goals and their respective strategies.
Enhancing the diversity of the Oregon State community is essential to attaining excellence in our educational, research and outreach endeavors and to preparing our students to succeed in a globally connected world.
We must ensure that all budget and finance, physical infrastructure and private philanthropy resources entrusted to the university are used effectively, efficiently, transparently and in a socially responsible manner. We will leverage The Campaign for OSU successes to advance the university’s excellence in signature areas and in service to our students.
Technology and information occupy a critical role in a 21st century university and are an essential part of developing greater efficiencies in institutional and administrative functions. Greater accountability, enhanced expectations of a current generation and growth in the development, management and delivery of digital resources point to the expanding role that big data, analytics and information technologies provide as a strategic and enabling asset.
