Northwestern's Strategic Plan 2016-2020

Members of the Northwestern community currently are working on preparing a Strategic Plan for the next five years.

The current strategic plan for 2011-2015 – Rising Above (PDF) – details our work to build upon our past successes and position Northwestern to better serve our students, our communities and the citizens of Oklahoma. We invite you to read this strategic plan as we work toward preparing the new plan.
