Beginning in 2012, UMass Amherst embarked upon a campus wide, multi-stage strategic planning process. Through a number of broadly representative committees and working groups, a strategic plan was created and adopted by Faculty Senate vote in the spring of 2013. Recognizing the evolving circumstances around our campus and higher education as a whole, the existing plan was reviewed in the fall of 2017 and a new plan for the next five years was completed in the spring of 2018. You can read the plans and access materials about the processes that went into their development below.
