The strategic plan is the culmination of 20 months of planning and diligent work by many Spartans. This section provides links to numerous important planning documents and reports that provide a deeper look into the planning process and the areas of focused examination that led to the creation of the final plan.

Progress Reports

Since MSU 2030 was endorsed by the Board of Trustees in September 2021, academic and administrative units as well as theme-focused workgroups have engaged in planning, prioritization and implementation activities to achieve the goals outlined in the plan. Our progress is shared periodically in reports that provide performance on key metrics, outline selected key initiatives and highlight stories illustrating great work in each strategic theme area.
