WUBOR presentation on graduating student survey

On September 30, 2019, Dr. JuliAnn Mazachek presented on the key findings of the graduating student survey for Summer 2018, Fall 2018 and Spring 2019. The slides of the presentation are available in powerpoint format, and the full report can be accessed through Strategic Analysis and Reporting-Institutional Research.

Academic Strategic Plan 

In 2010 Washburn University adopted a university-wide strategic plan. In support of this plan, an academic strategic plan was developed to move forward the identified academic elements within the university plan. The next round of strategic planning began during fall 2017 with faculty roundtables providing input into the main themes of the strategic plan framework. The proposed strategic plan framework was presented to the Washburn Board of Regents in December 2018. With the approval of the strategic plan framework, work has begun crafting unit-level strategic plans in support of the approved strategic planning themes.
