In Action for Excellence
Augusta State has a very long tradition of academic excellence and success. We are now building on that tradition with a new strategic plan called ASU in Action for Excellence, 2010-2015. This collaborative, multi-voice document–crafted by faculty, staff, students, and community supporters–provides the framework for the university’s progress over the next five years. This is an exciting—although challenging—time. As a public university, we are faced with reductions in state appropriations, increased competition from other institutions and online programs, a state and national economic downturn, and program demands of changing, emerging technologies and global competitiveness. These challenges require the university to find new ways to enhance learning and to serve our students and communities.
This Strategic Plan will help us do that—while helping us become an even better institution. The capabilities of ASU’s accomplished faculty, staff, students, and partners will enable us to grow our quality, programs, and impact as we achieve success in our strategic plan.
