UW Strategic Planning

The Sustainable Academic Business Plan Evolution & Archive

Launched in 2010 as a result of the Two Years to Two Decades (2y2d) planning, the Sustainable Academic Business (SAB) Plan is based on the vision of more than 3,500 student, faculty and staff who participated in 2y2d focus groups to imagine The UW of the 21st Century.

Based on this vision, the provost and campus leaders developed this SAB Plan to be an evolving framework of long- and short-term goals. It guides workgroups across the campus for implementing the 2y2d vision in the near-term, identifying gaps and launching initiatives to fill them. The SAB Plan is regularly updated, most recently in spring 2014.

Steering committee

The Sustainable Academic Business Plan Steering Committee began meeting in summer 2010 and continues to meet quarterly.  It includes academic and administrative leaders as well as representatives from Faculty Senate.
