Our Overarching Goal: Transformative Experiences for SFA Students
We will engage our students in experiences that prepare them for the challenges of living in a global community.
Our Foundational Goal: Meaningful & Sustained Enrollment Growth
Through an appropriate mix of relevant programs, delivery methods and locations, we will attract an increasing number of students seeking to prepare themselves for the future. Enrollment growth will be evidence of our productive participation in achieving the state's strategic goal for developing a more educated population. In addition, growth provides the foundation for our ongoing fiscal sustainability.
Our Support Goals:
Attract and Support a High-Quality Faculty & Staff
Our faculty and staff are the university's greatest assets. It is all of us together who engage our students in the high-impact practices that provide the transformative experiences they seek. To successfully fulfill our mission, we must attract and retain highly qualified people.
Foster Academic & Co-Curricular Innovation
As the needs of our students evolve, so should our curricular and co-curricular programs. We will be innovative in the ways we reach our students and prepare them for lifelong learning and successful careers in the 21st century.
Redefine University Culture
We will have an energetic and respectful workplace where civility, inclusivity, and accountability are guiding principles for everyone.
We will embrace the strengths of our stakeholders to better enable us to provide a stellar learning experience for our students and contribute to the quality of life of everyone we touch.
Join the Conversation
During the 2016-17 year, faculty and staff members across campus will engage in a conversation about how we can focus on what matters most here at SFA.
We will be using the recently released book The Undergraduate Experience - Focusing Institutions on What Matters Most as a common guide for this discussion.
Groups will be formed on the program level and the book will be provided to those who let us know of their desire to participate. To register for this conversation and to receive a copy of the book, please complete this form.
We hope you will join the conversation about how we continue to move SFA toward our collectively Envisioned future!
