BTV Planning Process

To assist in the FY12/13 budget planning process, a draft of the Building the Vision Academic Strategic Plan will be ready by the end of the Fall 2011 term. NMSU anticipates a three-year cycle of academic strategic planning: university level, college level, and departmental level, demonstrating a dynamic, thoughtful academic plan closely aligned with, and highly responsive to, trends and forces in the larger higher education community.
