Doane’s strategic plan articulates the university’s strategic priorities and serves as a general roadmap of efforts as Doane moves towards its 150th anniversary in 2022. Based on a new vision, mission, and values, the plan builds on Doane’s current strengths and focuses energies and resources on the most pressing issues. This plan will assist the University to establish priorities, guide decision making, align financial and human resources, and maximize the impact of resources. Annually, the administration will identify a suite of signature projects to be acted upon which seek to support the strategic pillars and strategies. As such, the plan is a “living” document-a guidepost for decision-making and is referenced, revisited, and revised on an ongoing basis.
