UW Bothell Strategic Planning 2026

The University of Washington Bothell is currently developing its next strategic plan for the campus. This new strategic plan is due to launch in winter 2020, at which time we also will celebrate the successful completion of our current strategic plan, the 21st Century Campus Initiative.

The new plan, now being reviewed by Chancellor Wolf Yeigh, has been shaped by feedback the Strategic Planning Team has gathered over the last two years from stakeholders on and off campus.

The plan presents a framework of three overarching priorities that are actionable, measurable and achievable. Success over time will be assessed in part by a series of campus-wide indicators noted in the new plan.

The plan is also designed to serve as a framework and inspiration for individual units across the campus to align their strategic plans to the new core campus priorities.

Multi-Year Implementation

The implementation of the new Strategic Plan 2026 will take a phased, multi-year approach, starting in winter 2020.
