University priorities and initiatives
A number of initiatives and policy strategies have emerged and evolved to help Northern Arizona University achieve ambitious goals to graduate more students in an atmosphere of declining state funding.
Our strategic plan
Over the last two years, NAU has engaged in an extensive process to update our long-term strategic plan in alignment with our mission, vision, and values. Intensive input and deliberation has involved more than 1,500 internal and external stakeholders, selected to maximize the diversity of perspectives reflected within the NAU community, from senior administration and faculty to students and community leaders. This extensive process ensures that we are not passive participants content just to celebrate our University’s past, but are envisioning our future and higher levels of achievement.
