University Planning

Long Term Planning Team

Western Illinois University's Long Term Planning Team was established in fall 2012 and is following a model prepared by the Association of Governing Boards (agb.org/trusteeship/2012/3/power-strategic-thinking) to evaluate 20-year trends in higher education (current and projected) to determine if the University's Higher Values in Higher Education strategic plan has successfully prepared the University to address the trends.
