The Strategic Plan, 2010 - 2015
UWG’s Four Strategic Guiding Principles
- Academic Programs Balancing Liberal Arts with Professional Preparation
- A Campus that is Safe, Engaging, and Exciting
- Steady and Intelligent Enrollment and Resource Growth
- Meaningful Engagement with Off-campus Communities
The Strategic Plan is designed to shape the University of West Georgia for the next five years in such a way as to place it as a destination university, particularly among peer universities in the state of Georgia and among those universities in the nation granting doctoral degrees in programs that balance liberal education with professional preparation. In addition to this bold pledge of shaping, creating, and maintaining such a distinctive educational mission as expressed in its degree programs, it also promises to be a leader in campus safety and campus life. That is to say, West Georgia will be guided by a commitment to a safe and engaging campus. West Georgia predicts a growing enrollment, and the University is committed to a steady and smart growth that together with careful resource management will enhance our primary mission of academic excellence in a personal environment. Finally, we are committed to our external community from Atlanta to India to Japan, but we are quite mindful of our local community of Carrollton, Georgia, and will build on all of our current obligations of giving students opportunities for service work in the community even as we invite the community into our campus and thus work together to develop our neighborhood as a recognizable university village.
