UW-Stout prides itself on an inclusive, collaborative, and innovative strategic planning process that incorporates multiple opportunities for input and review. Every 10 years, we start a new strategic cycle. Our current cycle—FOCUS|2030—began in 2020 and will strategically guide the university until 2030.
We invited UW-Stout stakeholders—including local leaders, employers, and alumni—to join us remotely on July 21, 2020, to help ensure we are on a path to continuing success and improvement. They shared their ideas and insights to help focus our vision and answer questions like: Should we retain a more traditional model of higher education or move dramatically to a more entrepreneurial, collaborative and market-sensitive model?
