Preamble

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Division of Student Affairs is integral to the University in its dedicated mission to teaching, research, and service. The Division of Student Affairs programs, services, facilities, and dedicated staff complement the University’s mission and more specifically, the 2020 target goals related to enrollment, the six-year graduation rate, and research funding. The Division of Student Affairs Strategic Plan is designed not only to be responsive to these institutional strategic indicators but also to matters of national significance.

The Division of Student Affairs Strategic Plan is intended to challenge current ways of thinking and implementation; uniquely identify Divisional priorities; and affirm the commitment of the Division to be an active partner in the life and functions of the University in an ongoing and deliberate manner. This plan is a living document which will adjust to the ever changing culture of our students, University, nation, and global society.
