Planning Process

UTEP's strategic planning process is designed to allow every member of the campus community the opportunity to participate and contribute to the strategic thinking that will inform the final plan for the University. Students, faculty, staff, and other stakeholders will be invited to participate in theme group meetings, charettes, and open forums.

UTEP’s senior leaders will guide the strategic planning activities. We have also hired MGT Consulting Group to facilitate the planning process. President Wilson has established a Strategic Planning Advisory Committee to provide feedback and analysis to UTEP’s senior leaders during the process. In addition, a Communication/Writing team has been assembled to handle communications across campus and the writing of the strategic plan.

Every member of the campus community can submit feedback through this website or email their input to any member of the Strategic Planning Advisory Committee or to strategicplan@utep.edu.
