The University of North Dakota One UND Strategic Plan emphasizes seven main goals to accomplish by 2022.
As the Chief Opportunity Engine for North Dakota and our students, we strive to be the Premier Flagship University in the Northern Plains.
The One UND Strategic Plan is the product of a process that involved more than 900 individuals coming together to craft the future of the University of North Dakota.
This plan is truly an illustration of One UND, touching all corners of the University: research, enrollment, online education, creation of 21st century programs, alumni relations, and so much more.
