Building on Excellence: A Strategic Plan for WCU

Strategic Planning Assessment and Advocacy Committee (SPAAC)

The Strategic Planning Assessment and Advocacy Committee coordinates campus assessment, review, and implementation of the strategic plan, Building on Excellence. Learn more about SPAAC and the strategic planning process at West Chester University.

As one of the nation's top regional comprehensive public universities, West Chester University is primed for even greater success. More than 2,000 stakeholders have participated in creating and implementing a truly shared vision — the Building on Excellence strategic plan. Building on Excellence identifies opportunities and challenges, and presents clear goals and outcome actions. It outlines concrete actions to be taken and clearly identifies end results.

In the three years since this plan was launched, we have made great strides in advancing West Chester University in excellence. Most importantly, we have not only retained but strengthened our commitment to what we value most — the success of every WCU student. We are currently beginning Year 4, Phase 2 of the plan and there have been exciting developments in a number of key areas.

I invite you to review Year 3 Updates to Building on Excellence by clicking on each of the five theme areas - Academics, Diversity, Engagement, Enrichment and Sustainability -- found in the tool bar above.

Additional information, including the entire plan in its comprehensive form, can be found by clicking on the Archives link, below.

Your feedback is always welcome. Feedback forms can be found in each of the five theme pages.

I am very proud of our plan and believe it serves as a model for others to emulate. Thank you for playing a role in helping West Chester University achieve great things for our students, the citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the wider world.

Christopher M. Fiorentino
Interim President, West Chester University
