2025 Strategic Planning Process: A New Era of Excellence!

Building on the success of the EPIC 2020 Strategic Plan, Shaw University is pleased to announce the kick-off of the strategic planning process for 2020-2025. 

The Shaw University 2025 Strategic Plan is essential to the short- and long-term growth, evolution, and sustainability of the University. The Shaw 2025 Strategic Plan will establish a vision for the next five years and a set of measurable goals and objectives to help guide decisions on institutional investments, programs and activities. 

To ensure that the 2025 strategic planning process and final strategic plan reflect the perspectives and values of the Shaw University community, the University will offer several opportunities for students, faculty, alumni, staff, trustees and friends to provide input into this plan.   

Shaw University looks forward to your support, engagement, and participation in this critical process as we enter A New Era of Excellence!
