Dear Campus Community,

A few weeks ago, we shared an update on Imagining 2034 and the strategic planning process.

We are writing to let you know that the strategic planning working groups have been convened and are in the process of gathering information, data, and ideas around our six thematic areas:

  • Education
  • Research and Creative Activity
  • Translation and Knowledge Transfer
  • Engagement
  • Inclusivity and Wellness
  • Financial and Operational Viability

A reminder that all members of our community are invited to participate in this process!

You can learn more about each theme and submit your ideas about imagining UMass Amherst in 2034 on the strategic planning website. Please note that you will need your UMass NetID and password to access the “Share Your Ideas” submission form.

Submissions close March 1, 2024, so share your ideas today!
