Strategic planning for higher education
& workforce development
The Missouri Department of Higher Education & Workforce Development is working on a new strategic plan. Sign up to receive updates about our strategic planning and how you can be involved in the process. Follow along on Twitter and Facebook with @MODHEWD and #DHEWDPlans4theFuture.
The primary focus of the strategic planning process will be developing a mission statement, big goals, and strategies for the department. The work will also include identifying a small number of big impact best practices to begin implementing in January 2022.
Missouri's current plan, Preparing Missourians to Succeed: A Blueprint for Higher Education, was adopted in 2015. Part of the strategic planning process will be to review Missouri's Big Goal for higher education.
Staff and stakeholders explored an environmental scan of Missouri, an analysis of strengths, weaknesses and threats, and a conversation about opportunities and next steps.
