Strategic Initiatives committee established for University future

In a mission to better the University and core components, Murray State officials comprised a committee to oversee “Achievement, Endeavor and Hope: The Murray State Plan,” commonly referred to as the Strategic Initiatives Plan.

The plan is under development as four individual committees work to gather objectives and success measures.

The plan’s development will span over the course of this academic year and will be implemented from 2015-2022.

The committees were comprised to focus solely on individual aspects of the University and its overall success.

Those committees are academic excellence, student success, scholarship, research and creative thought and community engagement.

Through town hall meetings, conversation and input from the Murray State community, each committee will report to the executive committee, which will then report to President Bob Davies.

From there, Davies will present the plan to the Board of Regents.

The final Strategic Initiatives Plan will be presented to the board by June 5, 2015, and will be shown to students, faculty and staff at the beginning of the 2015-16 academic school year.

Further details on the Strategic Initiatives Plan can be found at and the Murray State community is encouraged to attend town hall meetings.
